Census details

Some aspects of John Base's life. The White Swan public house was 'in the family' for some time.

The publicans have been -

RICHARD G PARMENTER 1854-1863,(Porter Merchant 1851 at North Quay - age 39 ). I think Richard and his wife Sarah may well have been the grand parents of Sarah CANHAM (nee PARMENTER). Sarah married Samuel CANHAM in 1858 and thier daughter Sarah Maria CANHAM married Johhn BASE in 1886.

George CROWE 1865-1869. George's daughter Leah married another of Richard PARMENTER'S Grandchildren Sarah's brother Thomas CANHAM in 1893

GEORGE CROWE      1886 - 1890 see 1865-1869

Mrs. MARY ANN CROWE      1892 - George's widow
