A sale of properties in Emneth, Elm and Outwell took place here on Monday 22nd May 1809, house then described as the WHITE SWAN.

On Monday 13th June 1899, Alfred May was accused by Police-constable Brighty of being open for the sale of beer at 10:30 p.m. on 31st May. Two persons, Pipe and Smith were found on the premises by the constable and both had a tankard of beer.
It turned out that Mr. Edward Cable Pipe, architect's assistant, had arrived with plans for renovation of the house and sought the opinion of the licensee as to how much the brewers, Messrs Hogge & Seppings, would give for the work. Mr. Smith had arrived to do private business with the landlord, in part to settle a bill and secondly to sell him a canary. Both men had arrived before closing time and the front door to the house was locked at 10:00 p.m.
Upon arrival, Pipe had purchased a half-tankard of beer and sat in the private quarters, May had then given him another one. Robert Henry Smith, grocer of Outwell had also purchased a beer before the closing hour and had been shown into the private quarters to settle his business. There he was treated to another, which Miss May asked him to have at her father's expense.
Charges were withdrawn and the case dismissed.
