The surname Swindle was first found in Cheshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor near Cheadle. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 14th century when it is said that they were a branch of the Howford family.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Swindell, Swindale, Swindle, Swyndel, Swindlehurst, Swingelhurst, Shinglehurst, Singlehurst, Swinglehurst, Swindlehirst and many more.
