  • ID: I73432
  • Name: Robert de Swynford
  • Sex: M
  • Death: 1349
  • Residence: Burgate, Suffolk
  • Note:

    The only one of Hugh Swynford's forebears of whose relationship to him we can be certain is his father, Sir Thomas Swynford, who was probably the son of Sir Robert de Swynford of Burgate, Suffolk, whose arms were the same three gold boar?s heads on a field of silver as Sir Hugh Swynford displayed. Sir Robert Swynford had sold the manor of Burgate this would have left his heirs landless and might well explain why in August 1345, Sir Thomas Swynford acquired from the de Cupplcdyke family" the manor of Coleby in Lincolnshire.
    (Katherine Swynford: The Story of John of Gaunt and His Scandalous ... - Page 59. Alison Weir. 2011.)
    Margaret, widow of Robert Swynford (d.1349) was the paternal grandmother of Sir William Burgate (d.1409), of Burgate, Suffolk, and from her William inherited property in Huntingdonshire at Great Stuckeley, Little Stuckeley and Ripton, Huntingdonshire.
