The Schweyen surname is a habitational name, taken on from any of several places so named in Saxony, Westphalia, Hesse, and Bavaria.

Schweyen Early Origins



The surname Schweyen was first found in Switzerland, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society.
