SWARBRICK Family History

This unusual name is of Old Scandinavian origin, specifically Old Norse, and dates back to the 8th and 9th Centuries when large areas of northern and north western England were invaded and later settled by Norsemen and Danes. The modern surname Swarbrick is a locational name, deriving from the place so called in the parish of Kirkham, Lancashire. The placename means "Black's hill", derived from the Old Norse byname or nickname "Svartr", meaning "black", with the Old Norse "brekka", slope. Locational surnames, such as these, were usually acquired by a local landowner, or by the lord of the manor, and especially by those former inhabitants of a place who had moved to another area, and were thereafter best identified by the name of their birthplace.
