I also have reference to a "Swan" also in the High Street, Blue Town, but don't believe this is the same as the licensee there in 1856 was a different named person.

 

Bell's Life in London and Sporting Chronicle, Sunday 21 June 1829.

Richard Bishop, the Sheerness Champion, says he is willing to fight any man in England, and can be backed for 50 or 200 pounds. His money is ready at the "White Swan," Blue Town, Sheerness. His weight is 13 stone 2 pound; his height 6 feet.

John Bulling, the keeper of the "White Swan" public house at Sheerness, was charged, before Dr. Poore and J. D. Dyke, Esq., on Monday last, with aiding in the conveying of 134 lb weight of contraband tobacco. The defendant pleaded guilty, and was fined 211 1s., and cost; and, in default, was ordered to be committed to Maidstone gaol until paid.
