Swift family of Massachusetts, genealogy

 

Posted below as a downloadable Word document is a genealogical report about my Swift  ancestors, beginning with the original Swift immigrant from England, William Swift, who emigrated from Bermondsey, Surrey, England. He emigrated in 1634 and first lived in Watertown, Mass. He moved to Sandwich Mass. in 1639.

The report focuses on my descent from William through his daughter Hester (Swift) Gibbs (circa 1668-1736), the wife of Lt. John Gibbs. Her descendants included my maternal grandfather.
