  1. My name is Wesley Edward Swaincott. It is indeed an unusual surname. My brother Gordon has a website at gordonswaincott.com. I have a genealogy going back to Philip Swancot, my great-great-great-grandfather. I don’t know much about him, but he may have been the first to immigrate to America. He may have come from Montgomeryshire, Wales and lived co-incidentally in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, USA. His wife, Mary Thomas, lived long after he died in 1813. It is assumed she spoke with a strong “British” accent. in one court appearance transcript her surname is spelled Swankart, the court secretary probably did a phonetic spelling.
