19 I have found various spelling of the surname Swancutt during my research, here are some that I have found on Census forms, Birth, Marriage, and Death certificates.
Most people at this time could not read or write, so an official would have filled in forms and certificates, and the spelling of the surname would have been left to him

51 The search for the parents of William Henry Pike born 1838 Liverpool
The facts.
William Henry Pike was born in the city of Liverpool on the 22 January 1838.
Parents on his birth certificate are father, William Pyke (occupation, Crown Glass Cutter) and mother, Ellen Pyke formally Friar.
William Henry Pike (b1838) married Betsy Pinfield from Birmingham on the 21 November 1859 at the parish church Rotherham, Yorkshire. William’s occupation on the marriage certificate is given as, Brass Burnisher, and his fathers occupation is given as Glass Cutter I am not sure what they were doing in Rotherham at this time but William and Betsy moved to Birmingham somewhere between 1861 and 1863.

With this evidence I looked for the marriage of William’s parents, William Henory Pyke and Ellen Friar and took a guess at 1837, working a year either side of this I found the marriage date on the IGI, batch no 1025754, 6 April 1836, Prescot parish church, Lancashire.
I sent for a copy of their marriage certificate from St Helens library, Lancashire.
As you can see from the marriage certificate William and Ellen could both write, Ellen’s signature is a little childlike and I am not sure but William looks to have spelt Henry, Henory, I don’t know if this was some old way of spelling Henry or not? Also the spelling of his surname is Pyke and not Pike.
The details on their marriage certificate are a little hard to read so I have re-typed them below,

Marriage solemnized in the parish of Prescot in the county of Lancashire in the year 1836.
William Henry Pyke of this parish Sutton, Crown Glass Cutter, bachelor
And Ellen Friar of this parish Sutton, Spinster
Were married in this church by License, with the consent of__________
This Sixth day of April in the year one thousand eight hundred and Thirty Six
By me (cannot make out name) this marriage was solemnized between us
William Henory Pyke
Ellen Friar
In the presence of George Marsh & Mary Friar.

After their marriage in 1836 they lived for a time at number 3 Brown St, Liverpool, Lancashire, and this was the birthplace of William Henry Pike, born 1838.
On the 1841 census they had moved to, Spencer Buildings, Liverpool, Lancashire.
They also had a daughter named Mary, born 1840, the census also gave the place of birth for Ellen Pike (nee Friar) as Sutton, St Helens, Lancashire, England and for William Pike the 1841 census shows the letter S for Scotland and occupation as Glass Cutter.
But there was no sign of their son William born 1838, but after some searching I found him on the 1841 census as a visitor at his grandparent’s house, Joseph and Elen Friar, the address was, Ravenhead plate-glass works, Sutton, St Helens, Lancashire, and the age given for William was three. Interestingly the spelling of the surname on the 1841 census was Pike.
We then move on ten years to the 1851 census, William is now 13 years old and with his mother Ellen Pyke (nee Friar) now aged 38, they are shown on the census as visitor to a family by the name of Makin, Ellen’s sister Mary Makin (nee Friar) married Edward Makin in 1838, Mary is a witness on the marriage certificate for Ellen Friar and William Pyke.
Interestingly the Makin’s are also living at the Ravenhead Plate-Glass Works, with Edward Makin aged 38 as head and Mary Makin (nee Friar) aged 40 as his wife, they also have three children of their own and a Sarah Friar aged 22 living with them and she is described as Niece.
I have searched the 1851 census and used just about every combination of words to try and find Ellen’s husband William Pyke born 1815 Scotland and their daughter Mary Pyke born 1840, but they seem to have disappeared into thin air, also on the 1851 census the spelling of the surname is Pyke.
Next the 1861 census, by this time William Pike born 1838 was married to Betsy Pinfield they were married in Rotherham in 1859.
I still had no luck with 1861 census as I could not find William’s parents William and Ellen Pyke (nee Friar) or his sister Mary born 1840, I have also searched for their deaths without any joy.
One thing that I did find on the 1861 census was a William Pyke aged 42 and his wife Martha Pyke (nee Wynne) aged 25, they were married in Liverpool 1854, there was also two children shown on the census, Elizabeth aged 2 and John aged 9 months, both born in Liverpool, the address at the time was, 4 Court, Brownlow Hill, Liverpool, which is just around the corner from 3 Brown St where William Pyke was born in 1838 also on the census the occupation of William Pyke born 1819 was, Glass Cutter.
There are a number of possibilities of what might of happened to this family the marriage to Ellen Friar in 1836 broke down and they went their separate ways and William remarried Martha Wynne in 1854, or Ellen and Mary could have died and William decided to remarry, also look at the age difference between Martha and William, if this is our William Pyke remarrying he may have knocked a few years off his age, which was common in those days.
I will keep searching for William, Ellen, and Mary Pyke/Pike and if I find anything will update this page.

I have since found the death for their daughter Mary Pyke born Mar 1840, she died on 27 May 1843
