About Margery Periam

Notes

  • Thus, it was MARGERY Periam who married John Swete. She was born about 1538 in Exeter, Devon. They probably were married about 1556 and had children born in the next 10-15 years, including John (1557), Adrian (1559), and Robert (1561). She apparently died before 1599 which is the earliest date in the extant Modbury parish records. (1)
  • For example, the will of Hester Swete of Halwell (a village a few miles east of Modbury) dated 12 September and proved 15 October 1604 mentions her brother Robert Swete, sister Margaret Batty, sister Elizabeth Synner, Agnes Woolcott and Alice Neale [the two daughters of John Swete]. Her inventory was taken by Henry Swete. [Westcountry Studies Library. Research by Stephen Coombes of Chudleigh, Devon, 2002] If the Robert mentioned as "my brother" in her will and the will of John Swete was the same person, then

John, Robert, Hester, Margaret, Elizabeth (and probably Henry) were siblings and probably the children of John Swete and Margaret Periam.


(Note that Adrian born about 1559 probably died before 1604 because he isn't mentioned in either of these wills.)(1)
