Additional info

The effects of this earthquake are rather similar to those of the 1727 Swansea earthquake; it was strongly felt as far east as Oxford, and was felt in Devon to the south and Lancashire to the north, the western extent being obscure. There are no reports from London this time, but it was felt in Surrey and in Sussex.

At Swansea some houses were said to have "tumbled in". Certainly some chimneys were felled. The only other reported damage was an isolated and distant instance of a ceiling being damaged at Northwich, Cheshire.
