Viewing Event Record: The Swan is being used to host proceedings in the Requests case between the King's Men and Sir Matthew Brend

Abstract

Berry cites two depositions in a case between the King's men and Sir Matthew Brend, both taken at the Swan. He comments: 'Presumably an official body of the court would not take evidence in a hovel,' ie the Swan must still have been in reasonably good condition to host a legal hearing.
