It looked like the frames I took were about 1/4 to 1/3 capped brood but no larvae. One of the 3 was almost all honey, from one of the out side frames. Sounds like I might have compounded the problem.
Possibly, but I was asking more about the nurse bees that were on the frames covering the brood. If you didn't brush or shake any bees off the frames then you probably did no harm. If you are still concerned about them swarming yet again you could pull out a frame or two of brood and just shake the bees on those frames into one of the other swarm hives then return the frame to the original hive to cause fewer nurse bees to be "unemployed".
There is also the possibility that these swarms were not reproductive in nature, but simply due to overcrowding, if that's the case, then doing anything to move bees from the overcrowded hive to the less crowded ones will help, but opening up the entrance, adding another box to the original hive or adding a second entrance to the hive would also be good ways to alleviate the problem.
