The SWINFIELD Surname Project
The Swinfield DNA & Genealogy Group is for anyone who is now a Swinfield or who has had our surname in the past. Since 1837, only about 900 Swinfields have been born in England and Wales. Most people of the name were born and still live in Leicestershire, England. There is also a branch of the family which originated in the adjacent county of Warwickshire. From there, two brothers emigrated to Australia in the middle of the 19th century. Their descendants live there today. However, there are probably only around 300 to 400 of us who use this surname throughout the World at present. This Group is for those interested in the history and genealogy of the name Swinfield. By using DNA testing, it is anticipated that the separate ancestral lines, constructed from the paper documentary sources, can be brought together into one or two pedigrees which include most of the surname bearers of the past four centuries. I hope that you will join us to contribute to our knowledge of the family through genealogical research and genetic tests.
