  Visitation mentions William but does not follow this line. Noting that John, 2nd son of Thomas, is identified as younger brother of a Sir William, we presume that this William was the same person as (rather than father or uncle of) the Sir William Swan (a temp James I who r. 1603-1625) who is the first mentoned by BEB1841.
