    Default Origin of the Name "Old Swan"

    Hi all

    This may have been discussed before, and if so I apologize. But I was wondering what might be the origin of the rather odd but colorful name Old Swan. Does anybody know?

    Hi Chris, this has, been discussed somewhere on here before,and I vaguely remember the name "Old Swan" was derived from one,of several inn's, in the area, which may have had similar names,but I'm not sure if this was definitive?

    What a coincidence, I just hung up the phone with my mother who is from Old Swan and I told her that some lovely people on here had found pics of EH Jones, Paints Ltd. where my father worked all his life. I was asking on here about the cinema on their street too, my mother said it was the Regent but she met my father in the Curzon round the corner!
