Have history of Swans, sister put a lot of work into. A Swan was Washinton's paymaster, and Swans owned the Farm on Breeds Hill Where first shot was fired at English, and A Swan helped settle Fryburg, Maine
For all I know, Swan might not be my real name. One adoption, and it's history.
We've been to the Queen's swannery and it was quite a sight. It would be nice to have a connection to the name Swan as though some ancestor was a swan keeper. I would be interested in documentation on where the name originated in my family.

Very interesting this all explains a few connections I have.
Lots of pre-supposition here. I tend to think names come from many derivations and it's pretty hard to know yours, unless you can GET as far back as the first mention in your branch. I prefer to take my history from 1640 when my ancestor, "John Swan" first appears in the US history as a servant who marries Mary Pratt and is thus related to the Mayflower through her line. Then I don't have to think about being related to a "swineherd". :) Any other of these Swans out there? Cindy Swan-Martin
My Great Grandfather is a SWAYNE. He was from Cork City, County Cork, Ireland and came to the U.S. (NYC) in 1848.

Do you have links to or copies of our history. I too have done some research and have discovered that we are also tied to the Gunn Clan of Edinburgh.
Hello, my name is Danny Swan. Can you email me what you have on the Swan name, as far back as you have. Email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank You. Danny
I knew I had royal blood!
our family history suggests that our name swan comes from Edith Swanneck, Edith Swannesha is the old english.She was king harolds first wife, and identified his body at the battle of hastings, 1066. So, any thoughts on this? Karen Swan
