    Notes 
    • No one seems quite sure which branch of the Swain family William was a part of. In 1890, he was referred to as "William Swain of Stone Island, Caplin Bay, District of Ferryland" when he was given a Crown Land grant (#6410 - Volume 41, Page 99) "on the North side of Local Road at Stone Island, Caplin Bay". His land was adjacent to land granted, just a few days earlier, to Joseph Swain. William's land was also bounded on the south boundary by land in the possession of Laurence Sullivan. The witnesses at his marriage were Alfred Canning and Mary Swain, who were also married a few months later. I think it is likely that William was the brother of Mary (of Joseph Swain and Anne Power). William was noted as being 28 when they married in August 1892. His death record says he was born in Caplin Bay and he was 31 yrs. old when he died in 1894. He was only married about a year and a half when he died, less than a year after the death of his only child, Albert. (Kevin Reddigan)
