Swanswell 3 Board means 'to board intoxicating liquor'. In some cases the need for a premises to have 'a board', that is a sign board, suggested this name as some places did in fact display a blank board. However, in this case, the Board identified a person selling beer from their home; in other words a beerhouse under the 1839 Beerhouse Act, the real origin of the 'public house'. These premises are first known as the Hales Street Stores, an off-license. From 1895 to 1909 it is the Board public house and then from 1911 the SWANSWELL HOTEL.
