Swirnowsky Early Origins



The surname Swirnowsky was first found in Warsaw, the largest province of Poland, formerly the principality of Mazovia. The Capital is the city of Warwsaw. The main towns are Warsaw, Plock, Wloclawek, Zyrardow, Gostynin, Grojec and Kutno. Warsaw was chosen as the royal residence in the mid 16th century and became focal point of all culture of the Polish peoples. The surname became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. In their later history the name became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family.
