Swan Genealogy & History

Swan is an English surname, from the Old English swon, which was used for swineherds or pig-keepers. It became linked with the avian swan, pronounced the same way; the medieval name may have applied to people who raised either animal. It might also have been for people living or working at a building named for the swan. Swan family history begins with Hugo Swan, noted in the Pipe Rolls of Suffolk in 1176. Some well-known members of Swan genealogy are Major General Guy Swan; physicist, chemist, and incandescent light bulb inventor Joseph Swan; and Australian Deputy Prime Minister Wayne Swan.
