Nothing is known for sure about Humphrey's origins, but it likely that he always lived in Tideswell, as there were Swindells there long before him, including another Humphrey who was about a generation older.The name of his first wife is not known, but I believe she probably died in childbirth (the child also dying) in November 1675 (1). He then went on to marry Margaret Bramwell in Tideswell church on 27th November 1676 (4), and their first child, Emott, was born just under a year later (6), however she only lived for about a fortnight (7). Their next child, Ruth, was born in 1679 (8), followed by Samuel in 1681 (9). Ruth died just after her third birthday in the spring of 1682 (10), so when their next daughter was born in 1684, she was also named Ruth (11). Their son Job was born in 1687 (12), followed by Joseph in 1689 (13), then Hellina in 1692 (14). They had another child in 1693 that died as an infant, but it's name is not known (15). Another daughter Anna followed in 1696 (16) but she died in July 1698 (17), followed a few weeks later by Hellina (18) (and probably another otherwise unknown daughter too (19)). Humphrey died in April 1721 (21). He was survived by Margaret by nearly 13 years (22).
