Swancutt Early Origins



The surname Swancutt was first found in Derbyshire in Swanwick, a hamlet, in the parish of Alfreton, union of Belper, hundred of Scarsdale. Alternatively the name could have originated in Swanwick, a markettown and parish, in the union of Wareham and Purbeck, hundred of Rowbarrow in Dorset. This latter parish dates back to "the Saxon Chronicle [where] this place is called Swanawic; Asser Menevensis styles it Swanavine and Gnavewic, and in Domesday Book it is written Swanwic and Sonwic. The earliest and principal historical circumstance on record connected with it is the destruction by a violent storm, in 877, of a Danish fleet of 120 sail, on Peveril Point." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
Literally both places mean "dairy farm of the herdsman," from the Old English words "swan" + "wic." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
Conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant of the lands in the parish of Alfreton in Derbyshire, held by Ingran from Roger de Bully, a Norman Baron, who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086.
