Swindle History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Swindle family

The surname Swindle was first found in East Cheshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor near Cheadle. "This was in the parish of Cheadle, in which immediate district all our Swindells have sprung." [1] "The name of Swindells in this county has mostly been confined to Stockport parish, and especially to the townships of Marple and Disley, from the reign of Henry VIII. to the present day" [2] One source claims the family was "a branch of the family of Howford [which] held a small estate here (Bosden) in the 14th century, called 'Swyndelves'" [1] "The name of Swindell is characteristic of Derbyshire, and both varieties occur in the intermediate county of Stafford." [2] "Swindale is a chapelry in the hundred of Shap, co. Westmorland." [3]
