The Swan, Old Fish Street

The Swan, Old Fish Street
   In Olde Fish Street, 18 and 27 Eliz. (Lond. I. p.m. III. 82).
   Seems to have been near Distaff Lane, and probably on the northern side of the street, unless it is to be identified with the " Swanne on the Hoope" mentioned as the southeastern boundary of the Fish Market in Old Fish Street, in the Inquisition as to the limits of that market, 1 H. V. (Cal. L. Bk. I., set out in Riley's Mem. p. 598).
   Burn has a tradesman's token of the "Swan Tavern" in Ould Fish Streete, issued 1649-72, and suggests that it is identical with this "Swan on the Hoop Tavern" mentioned in the Inquisition. He places it at the south-east corner of Old Fish Street at its junction with Bread Street, which would be its position if the market occupied the whole extent of the street, as is suggested in the Inquisition. He says it was destroyed in the Fire and rebuilt and mentioned as late as 1712 (p.143).
