Edward Hibbert Swift owned a number of pubs and other properties in Surrey, Essex and Kent - mostly in Kent. The Elephant's Head in Rosherville was also one of his and his son James Swift, Irene's father, is listed there in the same 1918 directory. Thomas Stemp who you have listed as the licensee of The Old Sun in 1922 was Edward Swift's son-in-law. *
