SWINDELL Family History

Recorded in a number of forms including Swendell, Swindall, Swindell, Swindle, Swyndell, the dialectic Swindells and possibly others, this is a surname of Northern English origins. It is fairly widespread in the counties of Lancashire and Yorkshiore, and is locational. It is believed to originate from Swindale, a hamlet near Shap in the county of Westmorland, so called from the Old English pre 7 century words "swin", meaning a wild boar, plus "dael", a valley, hence, the valley where the wild boars roamed.
