Some history of the White Swan on Brearley Street at Aston New Town in Birmingham in Warwickshire
More information on the White Swan on Brearley Street to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the White Swan from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on the White Swan. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
"A publican's manager, named Leaver, made an application for the temporary transfer of the licence of the White Swan, Brearley Street,
to himself. The application was made on a previous occasion, but was withdrawn on account of a statement to the effect that the applicant had been fined for permitting
gaming on the licensed premises he was in charge of. Mr. Barradale said that the brewery companies had passed a resolution not to employ as managers persons who had
been previously fined. He did not know whether the Edgbaston Brewery Company, the owners of the house in question, were a party to that resolution. The applicant had
been fined £5. and costs for permitting gaming at Wolverhampton. The transfer was refused."
