SWINDLE Family History

This interesting and most unusual name, found widespread in Lancashire is most probably an English locational name from "Swindale" in Skelton, North Yorkshire, so called from the Old English pre seventh Century words "swin", pig, wild boar, plus the second element "dael", a valley, hence, the valley where the wild boars roamed or the valley where pigs were reared. The following quote refers to another place of the name in the parish of Cheedle, in Cheshire, where the surname may also have sprung from: " A branch of the family of Howford held a small estate here "Bosden in the 14th Century, called "Swndelves".
