For centuries Swinton was a small hamlet in the township of Worsley, parish of Eccles and hundred of Salfordshire.[3] The name Swinton is derived from the Old English "Swynton" meaning "swine town".[3] In the High Middle Ages, Swinton was held by the religious orders of the Knights Hospitaller and Whalley Abbey. Farming was the main industry, with locals supplementing their incomes by hand-loom woollen weaving in the domestic system.[3]
