Excerpt from Works of George Swinnock, Vol. 5 A Very brief space will suffice to give the reader all the information that we have been able to procure respecting the life of the author of these works. George Swinnock was born at Maidstone in the year 1627. We learn some particulars respecting his family from the dedication of one of his works. The treatise called "The Fading of the Flesh" was originally a funeral sermon preached on occasion of the death of Mr Caleb Swinnock. To it is prefixed a twofold dedication; one to the widow of Caleb Swinnock, the other to the Mayor, &c., of Maidstone. Mrs Caleb Swinnock he addresses as his Honoured Cousin. Now, of course, we know that this term was used with great latitude, but we think it probable that Caleb was his cousingerman. In the dedication to the Mayor and corporation of Maidstone, he says, - "The occasion of it, as is well known to you, was the death of your neighbour, and my dear relation, Master Caleb Swinnock, who was interred May 21, 1662, whose father and grandfather had three or four times enjoyed the highest honour, and exercised the highest office, in your corporation." Now if, as we suppose, Caleb was the full cousin of George, Caleb's father must have been Georges uncle, and Caleb's grandfather must have been Georges grandfather. If then his grandfather and his uncle were three or four times chosen to the Mayoralty of Maidstone, the family must have been one of good standing in the place.
