Swilland is a village and a civil parish in the ancient hundred of Bosmere-and-Claydon, in the Suffolk Coastal District, in the English county of Suffolk. It is north of the large town of Ipswich. Swilland has a church called St Mary. It has a pub called The Moon & Mushroom Inn which has been awarded Suffolk Pub of The Year on two occasions by the Evening Star.HistorySwilland takes its name from Old English with the meaning of 'Pig land', this is broken down into two parts with 'swīn' meaning a swine and 'land' standing for land or and estate.Swilland is recorded in the Domesday Book as being a medium sized village located in the Hundred of Claydon, made up of 13 households, consisting of 6 villagers, 6 smallholders and 1 slave. It is recorded that in 1066 the livestock of Swilland consisted of 60 sheep which increased to 1 cob, 8 cattle, 19 pigs and 100 sheep by 1086.In the 1870s, Swilland was described as:"SWILLAND, a parish in Bosmere district, Suffolk; 3¾ miles N by E of Westerfield r. station, and 6 N by E of Ipswich. Post town, Ipswich. Acres, 951. Real property, £1,869. Pop., 243. houses, 52. The property is much subdivided."DemographicsIn 1801 the population of Swilland was 184 which saw a rise to 237 in 1811 but then a slight decline down 195 in 1821. In 1831 the population increased largely up to 272 in 1831, the population then continuously declined to reach its lowest figure in 1961 of 130. The population since 1961 has gradually risen to 163 in 2011 according to the 2011 census. There are records of the boundaries for Swilland dating back all the way to 1831, between 1831 and 1851 Swilland experienced an area change increasing from 520 acres to 951 acres. This is most likely the reason to the population rise in 1831 as the total area of the parish was almost doubled in size.
