Reply with quote

Hello,

I am looking for more information on the name Salwin and possibly its relation to other variants like Salwiński, Selwaniak, Selwon...
I have tracked my relatives to the earliest records (1760) to a village in Pniewo, Mazowieckie named Wólka Jezuicka.
Am I correct that Jezuicka means "Jesuit" in Polish?
Could this mean that my relatives were serfs bound to Jesuit owned lands?
Could the name Salwin be a variant of the latin word Salvus (meaning safe/ saved)? Similar variants are seen throughout Europe in Scandinavia and England.

Any information or insights would be appreciated.

Hello Row,

You are right, accordingly to Hoffman's "Polish Surnames" Salwin surname (and its variations: Salwa, Salwik, Salwiński, Salwowski) comes from Latin salvus - “saved, whole” or from given name Salwator.

Nowadays there are 703 individuals using this surname living in Poland (18 people live in Pniewo). Detailed map of the surname distribution can be found here: https://nazwiska-polskie.pl/Salwin

In Geneteka there are indexed records with Salwin people and you can find there a lot of records from Pniewo and Wólka Jezuicka: https://geneteka.genealodzy.pl/index.php?op=gt&rid=B&search_lastname=salwin&exac=&from_date=&to_date=&w=07mz
(however I think that you know about it because the oldest records in Geneteka comes from 1760 and you mentioned this date)

Listen how this surname is pronounced in Polish (click on the “Listen” button): https://translate.google.pl/#view=home&op=translate&sl=pl&tl=en&text=Salwin

Good luck with your research!
