This house is mentioned in 1622, when Edward Hewlett, by deed, conferred a rent-charge of £20 upon it and another adjoining thereto, to the poor in general. And in the same year by a second deed he gave to the poor of Cures College the remainder of the Swan with Two Necks and Dagger tenements. In 1719 the two tenements are made into one, being described as the "house over against the Bull Head which was formerly known as the Swan with Two Necks and Dagger." --[R. and N., 302]
