Places called Swancott

Just north of Rome, New York, USA was a small community built around the lumber industry called Swancott Mills (or Swancotts Mill). The mills were founded by David Swancott (born 8/8/1831) and ran the mills with his sons Philipe, Thomas William and Edward. The mills are gone except for store foundations, but the crossroads retains the name. Swancott Mills has it’s own poem written about life in the “Northwood lumber camps”.

There is also a small “cross roads” farm town known as “Swancott” south of Madison, Alabama, USA.

There is also a Swancott Centre in Woy Woy, New South Wales, Australia.

Finally a small hamlet outside of Bridgnorth, Shropshire, England is named Swancott.
