Deeds from 1622 to 1794 known to exist.

Offered for sale by auction Monday 31st March 1794. Then in occupation of Richard Carter, as tenant in sufferance; consisting of a large kitchen, a parlour, 6 bed chambers, good cellars, with every other convenience necessary; a chafe-house, good stables and outhouses, yards, gardens, and about 4 acres and a half of exceedingly good Land, with right of common over those large and rich commons in Mattishall.

It was reported 29th September 1832 that Mrs. Carter had lately died, age 73.
Along with her husband she had been landlady of the Swan for 43 years.

Richard Carter died Monday 14th August 1843, aged 100 and apparently still serving at the Swan.

Mr. Tompson's Stag Hounds met at the Swan on Tuesday 19th March 1844. The Stag, presented by Lord Hastings, went away at a good pace and took a direct line to North Tuddenham and then to Hockering wood, to the outskirts of Weston to Ringland village, then to Morton and Attlebridge and Alderford, to be taken at Witchingham Hall. A capital run of one hour and a half.
The only gloom thrown over the day was news of the death of Lord William Hill, with whom many had hunted the previous week.

For Sale by Auction Thursday, 18th April 1844, by order of the Trustees for Sale under the Will of Mr. Richard Carter, deceased.
Including a large parlour or club room, comfortable sitting room, commodious kitchen, bar, store room, pantries and cellars, seven good bed rooms. A large Yard with Barn, Stable for 10 horses and other Outbuildings.
Five Lots of Land were also in the auction.

Rebuilt 1934.
