Thomas SWETNAM was born about 1740. He married Frances CALL in 1765 in , Stafford Co., Virginia.

Received the below 11/98 from: Gerald S Pierce :

George Swetnam's parents were Thomas Swetnam and Frances Call. They were married in Stafford County, Virginia (St. Paul's Parish), in 1765. There seem to have been three children, all boys: George, William and unknown. Frances died before the Revolution. Thomas went deeply in debt to the Scottish money-lenders who were active along the Virginia rivers at that time, lost his property and eventually was forced into the Patriot army just to keep his head above water (having farmed out the children to friends and relatives). He was sent off to South Carolina at some time during the war and died there. (I live on what was a Revolutionary War battlefield in Camden, South Carolina, and I've sometimes wondered whether my fourth great-grandfather Swetnam was among the Virginians who died here in 1781.) George was apprenticed to a saddler in Fredericksburg, Virginia, but eventually did quite well for himself, having a good estate in Scott County, Kentucky. As to the Swetnams' ancestry, there are gaps. I believe that Thomas Swetnam was a grandson of one John Swetnam who came over to Virginia from London in 1692 as an apprentice. He (John) was an orphan, born 1674, who had been educated at the excellent Christ's Hospital of London (the academy of the "blue coat boys" that still exists, though at a different location). John was the son of a freeman of London, Thomas Swetnam, whose ancestry undoubtled ultimately could be traced, with enough effort, to the Swetnams (Swetenhams) of Cheshire.

Numerous Swetnams are listed under his grandson John, in notes.

Frances CALL was born about 1743. She married Thomas SWETNAM in 1765 in , Stafford Co., Virginia.

From Gerald Pierce:

Of the Calls, I know nothing for certain. I suspect but am by no means
sure that Frances Call (George Call Swetnam's mother) was a daughter of
a Scotsman named McCall, of whom there were several actively involved in
the tobacco trade and money-lending in the neighborhood where she lived, including a George McCall. The Scots were not loved by many Virginians,
and it would not be surprising if she belonged to one of the branches of
the McCalls who dropped the "Mc" to blend in better with the English Virginians. I need to work on this and invite others who may be
interested to take a stab at it.
