Railway Swan Pub at Turvey

Back to Pubs and Inns

The publican in 1881 and 1888 was Henry Birch and his wife, Mary.

At the time of the 1911 census the Railway Swan was in the charge of publican Harry Alfred Southam, aged 33.

His wife of 9 years, Edith, also aged 33, assisted in running the business.

They had two children, Gordon Charles and Reginald Henry, aged 9 and 3 respectively in 1911.

The Railway Swan pub, as the name suggests, is very near to Turvey Station.

It is now a private residence.
