The name 'Swinderby' is assumed to have originated either from "sundri + by" (southern farmstead or village), or "svin + djur + by" (farmstead where pigs are kept); in Doomsday it is referred to as "Sunderby" and "Suindrebi".
The settlement might date back to at least Roman times as Roman pottery and parts of Fosse Way have been found. Some village buildings date back to the 17th century.
