Swing Riots of 1830

Postby sueddh » Wed Feb 20, 2008 8:40 pm

Can anybody tell me whether i can access the court records for winchester as 4 of my relations were convicted of participating in the swing riots. All 4 were transported to australia 3 for 7 years and one for life. Also is there anyway of finding out whether they returned to england after there sentance was complete?

This is the link for the Hampshire Record Office which is situation in Winchester. They should have some records you can access. There is an online search facility, although from experience I don't always find this user friendly. You can also email enquiries through the contact option.

Good Luck!

There are an interesting series of books about the swing riots you may find helpful.
The author is Jill Chambers and so far she has published books on the Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Dorset, Essex, Gloucestershire, Hampshire and Wiltshire.
I have the Essex volume and it is a mine of information and very well researched.

Hi - for info there is an article on Swing Riots in this month's (May 08) Family History magazine. It mostly features Norfolk but still an interesting read if, like me, you hadn't heard of the Swing Riots before.

Hi,
I also have copies of the Wiltshire Swing rioters books by Jill Chambers and they are a mine of information - they give the background, the witness statements at court, the sentences and what happened to rioters after. i.e. whether those transported returned to England or decided to stay after serving their time, settle and marry, etc.
