Swinton History

The surname Swinton is believed to be territorial in origin; deriving from the Barony of Swinton, which was granted to Eadulf Ros by Malcolm III around 1060.

The Swintons are Anglo-Saxon in origin, descending from the royal House of Bamburgh from the ancient Kingdom of Northumberland. They are widely accepted as being one of the oldest landed families in Britain.
