Stephen Jones made a transcript of the recollections of Frederick Swaffield as part of an Open University assignment.

Mr Frederick Swaffield was one of a large family who came to live in the New Inn, Stoke Abbott in 1895 when he was aged 7. He worked for many years as a carter for Mr Edward Smith at Lower Farm. He moved to Portland in 1924 to work in the quarries but returned to the village for a few years before his death, which occurred in Dorchester Hospital in 1963.
