      Letter from George Cass & Rylands 18.1.1967
      Dear Mr Swalwell
      Further to our conversation last week, we can now tell you the position with regard to the water and sporting rights as follows:-
      (a) Sporting rights - this was a lease by the Marquis for a period of 21 years from the 1st February 1952 and, therefore, will not expire until the 31st January 1973 ie in 6 years' time
      (b) Water - it appears that you have only the right to draw the water through the ram and it does not say in the Deeds that the spring is on your land We also note that if you are only using the water for agricultural purposes and not for the house the licence should only cost £1., and not £5., has been demanded. We cannot see any reference to the surplus water going to anybody else, it merely says that you can convey through the existing pipes such an amount of water as may be required for the domestic and farm purposes of the property, Yours faithfully George Cass Rylands and Co

    • A funeral service was held at St Leonards Loftus prior to his cremation at Middlesbrough. In the will he made 11 years before his death (ie 1963) he divided his estate equally between his two sons.
    Notes 
    • George Swalwell was the eldest son of John William Swalwell (1873-1911).  He had two brothers Albert Edward and John William and two sisters Alice Mary & Betsy. Albert, however, died as an infant. George was born at Low London Farm, Glaisdale on the 16th November 1898 where his father was employed as a Farm Labourer.

      His mother, Mary, did when he was only 13 having suffeed with breast cancer for a year. After his mothers death her sister, Christiana (known as Kitty) assumed responsibility for caring for the young family.

      Two years after he was married, ie 1918, his sister Alice Mary died at the age of 16. She had contracted influenza which subsequently developed into pneumonia.

      His father John William died in 1936 leaving his sporting gun to him.

      When the family lived at Cragg Farm Romany (G Bramwell Evans) author & broadcaster kept a traditional gypsy caravan or vardo at the farm.

      The family moved to Holywell Farm, Loftus in 1938 from Cragg Farm, Eskdaleside (otherwise known as Hardstruggle). Holywell Farm was partof the Zetland Estate. His son William George and his family remained at Holywell Farm after George died in 1974.

      When his son Wilf married Lilian Beck they gave the couple five beast and pigs as their wedding present.

      One of George Swalwell's favourite sayings was 'I feel like horse muck I've been on road all day'

      Everyone called him Boss so when his grand-daughter Carole first started talking she didn't call him Grandad or Grandpa but Boss
