Butch,
Consider also Schwersenz in Posen (Prussian Poland). See: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swarz%C4%99dz
It had a Jewish population of more than 1600 in 1840, reducing to around 300 by 1895.
From a Rotterdam manifest - Twersny (Note: the 'T' is unreadable on
the original image)
From a Hamburg manifest - Swersne
From a Hamburg manifest - Szweszne
I hope this helps
