My Great great grandfather William J Robins was still at the Red Lion, Bluetown on 30 Oct 1883 but had moved to the Swan by 29 September 1887. He must have moved tenancies between these dates. His widow died 1 September 1908; and his son Cecil J Robins subsequently became the landlord. *

Cecil J Robins enlisted in the first world war and was killed on the 2 August 1918. His death is recorded on the memorial which stands roughly where the Swan was. *

Earlier my great great grandfather was landlord of the Red Lion Bluetown and I know my grandmother was born in that pub; and in 1881, his parents are at the Hero of Crimea, Sheerness. *
