The SPANSWICK's of SCOTLAND



The Surnames of Scotland by George F Black includes the following entry : "Spanswick, A rare surname in Shetland, of local origin from a small place of the name"

Sadly this does not appear to be the case, the Spanswick surname is indeed a very rare in Scotland, but the earliest record so far places it at Leith in 1879.
