4th December 1817 - On Sunday night, a burglary was committed at the Swan public house in this town, from which the villains carried off notes and cash to the amount of 72s. (Approximately £125.00 at 2010 values)


On Monday 5th May 1856, Robert Ward was accused an assault on beerhouse keeper William Dennis who had entered the White Swan and wrung a customers nose. Causing a disturbance and offering to fight Ward, Dennis was knocked down and kicked.
Case dismissed.

On Monday 13th October 1856 Emma Rayner and Samuel Rayner were accused of stealing £63 and a silver watch from Robert Ward. It was heard that Emma Rayner was housekeeper to Mr. Ward and had been asked the previous week to place the money in an upstairs room. On Thursday 9th October Ward had returned from a sale and found that his housekeeper and her brother had decamped and the money and watch were gone.
The case was dismissed owing to insufficient evidence.

On 22nd March 1860, William Powell of the Swan went to the PRINCESS ROYAL to meet a draper by the name of Andrew Campbell who had reportedly made defamatory remarks about never trusting Powell with a bottle of gin. As he approached to ask what had been said, Campbell took up a poker and hit Powell on the head causing a wound that required the immediate attention of a doctor and he was confined to bed for five weeks. In court on Monday 21st May 1860 it was heard that Powel had given up the Swan and was then occupied as a law writer. Witnesses confirmed that Powell had made no physical threat to Campbell, although the latter said his pipe had been knocked from his mouth. Powell was ordered to pay damages of £15 as well as costs, which he declared he would pay at once.
