A 1793 reference lists both a White Swan and a Black Swan.

Lot No. 5 in the sale by auction to be held Tuesday 19th June 1860.
The other lots were cottages or other businesses in Hingham, Great Ellingham, Little Ellingham and Wicklewood.
Described as a brick and tiled Freehold Messuage, near Fisher's Mill, called the Swan and used as a Beerhouse, containing thereabouts of One Acre and occupied by Thomas Thurston. Possession to be had at Michaelmas 1860.

On Tuesday 7th September 1869, Robert Copeland was fined 18s, fine and costs, for refusing to admit Police-constable Grimes when he presented himself at the door. A further sum of 12s was paid, rather than go to prison for 7 days, for allowing beer to be consumed on the premises at prohibited hours.
Mr. Copeland then applied for his certificate, which was granted.

George Matthews is named in a Bullards record dated August 1871
whereby his licence requires attention.
