The White Swan
Southgate Street

An e mail kindly sent in by Frank Johnson.

I have today received a copy of my GGGGrandfather, John DAVIDGE's
Will. He appears to have owned the White Swan in Southgate St, Bath

Excerpt below:

I give unto my son Thomas the sum of Eighteen Pounds and Five shillings
per year which I direct my executors to pay to him by weekly instalments
of seven shillings arising from the rent of my leasehold house known by
the name or sign of the White Swan in Southgate Street in the Parish of
St. James in the City and Borough of Bath and now in the occupation of
Nathaniel Banes as tenant thereof

This will was written in 1843 and he died in 1844
