Swanson Genealogy & History

Swanson is an English and Scandinavian patronymic name meaning "Swan's son" or "Sven's son". Derived from Old English "swan" or "swon", meaning swan, it was a nickname for someone graceful or pure. Alternatively, it could be an occupational name derived from Middle English "swain", meaning herdsman. Swanson family history includes lordship of the Stockton manor in Durham in the 12th century, but by 1221 they had moved north to Scotland, primarily in the Midlothian area, using the surname variation Swainston. Scandinavian Swanson genealogy uses the spelling variations Svendsen, Svensen, and Svensson. The first Swanson in America emigrated to Philadelphia in 1627.
