The distinguished Dutch surname Swaenpoel is derived from "Swanepoel," the name of a village in the Dutch province of Gelderland. It is likely that the first bearer of this name was a resident of this village.

Swaenpoel Early Origins



The surname Swaenpoel was first found in Holland, where the name originated. During the Middle Ages, it was a common practice to refer to a new resident of a village by the name of his hometown; thus, it is possible that the progenitor of the name was a native of the town of Swaenpoel who had settled in another region.
