Swain Genealogy & History

Swain is an English surname, from the Scandinavian personal name Sven, Suen, or Svein, a nickname literally meaning boy. It came to England with the eighth-century Viking raids and again in 1066 with the Normans, who were ultimately of Norse descent. Swain family history enters the books with Osgot Sveyn, who was added to the Anglo-Saxon Wills List of Cambridgeshire in 1045. Swain genealogy includes several well-known people, such as 19th-century North Carolina Governor David Swain; the first woman to vote in the US, Louisa Swain; Australian actor Brett Swain; and award-winning British journalist Jon Swain.
