SWAN INN, Churchgate

SWAN INN
Churchgate (now Church Street)
*
Possibly in existence between 1602 and 1696.
MINE HOSTS:
1702                    Mr. Sudell  (Sudall)
                                                    L.R.O.  Bos DDCr 1 - 4  Items 1/15;  1/21;  1/22; 1/23; 1/24.

1732                    James Hamilton   -  Mrs. Sudell - widow - owner.
*
According to Stephen Sartin:
This inn was on the site of the Miller Arcade.

From the verbal description he gave to me, I
would imagine that it was where the KING'S ARMS were.

That inn was a 17th century establishment, and may
well have been known previously as the Swan Inn.
*
ALSO
According to the 1732 Poor Law Rate
Assessment book, in that year it was
known as the "KING'S ARMS & WOOLPACK"
L.R.O. Ref:  CNP/ 3/1/11
