Note : -

** Some of the available information regarding Costessey only refers to the SWAN.
Since the parish, at one time, supported both a BLACK SWAN and a WHITE SWAN, some of the references may be subject to confirmation.
( Both are given 1845 & 1851)


It was reported on the 20th July 1822 that some night previously, the house was broken into, but the resolute conduct of the landlord, Mr. Cooper, drove the robbers away. They had however managed to steal a 14lb ham.

 

Possibly traded as a beerhouse since not found in available licence registers from 1903.


Closed by compensation & sold 1914.
