The Schweid Family
from Amsterdam
c.1643

  • The family crest above is of Dutch origin.
  • Variations in spelling include van Swede, Sweed, Sweeden, Sweet, Sweden, Sweijd, Swijt, Switser, Zweden and possibly Sweyd.
  • The surname Schweid is not, as I originally thought, derived from a place of origin (Sweden). It is in fact the transliterated form of tne Aramaic name "Suweid". They were a family known for the delivery of messages between Mashrek/Maghreb Jews and European Jews. (Source - Bob Sweijd)
  • The family appears in Dutch records from the late 1600s.
  • There is a Bedouin village in the north of Israel, Suweid Hamira (Arabic: سواعد حميرة‎; Hebrew: סוויעד חמירה‎), located near Shefa-'Amr It falls under the jurisdiction of Jezreel Valley Regional Council. The village was recognised by the state in 1996.
