Joseph, son of John and Mary Swinerton, was baptised in West Felton, Shropshire on 6th September 1821.
The register has a note that he was "received in church" on 13th October 1822.
Joseph's father, John, was a labourer, living in "Rambles".
[There is a cottage called Cupid's Ramble about a mile north-west of West Felton, close to the canal. This was certainly there in the 1870s but we're not sure how much older than that. Perhaps "Rambles" refers to this cottage or to this small area near to the canal and Aston Locks?]

Joseph Swinnerton and Ann Jones, both of full age, were married, after banns, at St Philip's Church, Liverpool, on December 21st 1845.
Joseph, a batchelor, was a blacksmith, living in Copperas Hill.
Ann, a spinster, was living in Blake Street.
Joseph's father was John Swinnerton, Book Keeper*.
Ann's father was Thomas Jones, deceased.
Witnesses were ?? Maddock (possibly Thomas?) and Samuel Rowe?

[*Although Joseph's father is clearly written as Book Keeper on the parish record of the marriage, we are very certain that this is a mistake and should read Lock Keeper.
Everything else about Joseph ties in with him being the son of John Swinnerton, Lock Keeper at New Marton, Shropshire. Perhaps the vicar or curate misheard, or filled in the register from notes taken earlier, so this might be a transcription error. ]

1869:
By 1869, Joseph was a foreman working for the corporation water department. This article from the Liverpool Mercury in July 1869:


Occupation of a Public House by a Corporate Employee

Mr Beloe having moved the confirmation of the proceedings of the water committee:

Mr P H Rathbone asked whether it was true that the foreman of the Green Lane Works was interested in a public house near these works.

If it was the case, he thought some blame rested with the council that there was no regulation prohibiting those employed under the corporation holding public houses, for he thought it would be evident to all that it was most undesirable that persons in their employ should be interested in public houses, either directly or indirectly. (Hear, hear.)

Mr Belor said that, Mr Rathbone, having given him notice of the question, he was enabled to reply to it at once in the fullest possible manner. Many months since, Mr Holt , the deputy–chairman of the committee brought under his notice certain charges made against a certain person named Swinnerton, but who was not exactly foreman of the Green Lane works, but the general outdoor foreman, overlooking any works which might be going on in different parts of the town. These charges were handed to the engineer to report on, and he (Mr Beloe) was happy to say that one and all fell to the ground and proved to be false, with one exception, and that was that he kept a public house. Mr Holt and the engineer mentioned this to Swinnerton, and he said that he was not aware that it was against the law, and that he would take the earliest possible steps to get rid of the house. He (and Mr Beloe) hoped that after the remarks had been made those steps would be taken without further delay. He was not aware that they could compel the man absolutely to sell the house at a sacrifice, but at all events, everything had been done on the subject that possibly could be done, and, the attention of the committee having been drawn to the point, they would see that the house was disposed of.
Mr Rathbone asked whether he was in order in giving notice of his intention to call the attention of the council to the question with a view to the adoption of some rule prohibiting the holding of public houses by corporate employees. The Mayor – You must give notice in writing in the ordinary way.
The proceedings were then confirmed.
