The Swinnerton family originated in Staffordshire, and has been comprehensively traced back to the twelfth century. The Swinnerton Family Society is continuing the on-going study of the family, and this website shows some of the material that has been amassed to date.
The Society holds a comprehensive collection of genealogical material tracing the family name back for 900 years. We also have a complete collection of books written by Swinnerton authors, in addition to many other documents and artefacts in connection with the Swinnerton name. Please see our Names page, our People page, and our Pottery Museum for more details of these.
The Society publishes a magazine, The Swinnerton Saga, which is available to members as part of their subscription.
The next Annual General Meeting of the Swinnerton Family Society will be held on Saturday 3rd June 2017
in the Church Hall, Swynnerton, Staffs at 2:00 pm.
Coffee, tea, fruit drinks will be provided.
The December 2016 issue is now available.
The "Saga" magazine has been published continuously since 1976, and it is hoped that back issues will soon be made available on this website.
