Some history of the White Swan

More information on the White Swan in Victoria Road 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. There is also a general page for Aston.

Henry and Amy Heaven were running the White Swan by 1901. Henry's father, a blacksmith by trade, had uprooted the Heaven family from Mangotsfield in Gloucestershire in order to ply his skills in Birmingham.

Not long after Henry had married Amy Heath in 1885, he went into the licensed trade by running the Villa Tavern at Lozells. He and Amy moved to the White Swan for a spell when the house was operated by Rushton's Brewery Limited. After working for/with two of Birmingham's large breweries, Henry and Amy Heaven managed to gather the finance to buy their own pub. In a ratebook compiled in 1906, Henry Francis Heaven was recorded as owner and publican of the Swan with Two Necks in Lawley Street.
