Sir Francis, Edward, and William Swann

Posted: 21 Jan 2004 5:03AM GMT

I am totally confused. I believe I'm in the Edward Swann/Susanna Heath line. I see that records show Edward is the son of William Swann. William was born in the 1580's. Francis Swann and Dorothy Boys are listed as his parents but it's not possible. They were children when William was born if the dates are right. They can't be Edward's parents as they were dead before he was born.

Some lineages show William as the son of Samuel who was the son of a Sir Francis. Interestingly the William in each case is listed as being married to different women (Edward's parents specifically). The first says Judith Austin and the second says Judith Greene (same woman?).

And here's the best part---William could not have been the son of Dorothy Boys (not only because she was a child when he was born) but because he later married her.

Are William and Francis brothers? Who is Samuel? I also find a Henry as the father of Francis. Two Sir Francis Swanns?

This has me stuck. Any help would be immensely appreciated!
