Walter Swetnam

Primitive Methodist in Swinscoe with Blore

My ancestor Walter Swetnam was born in Swinscoe in 1762 and lived until 1845.

In 1813 Hugh Bourne called in Swinscoe and two months later Walter registered his home as a place of worship for Protestant Dissenters. Over the next 20 years he collected money to open a Chapel.


Thanks to David & Martine Swinscoe for their book, Swinscoe Blore and the Bassetts (1998)
