I am writing a book at the Georgian Stagecoach, and used your site to track one Joseph Alcock from the Swan with two Necks to the Axe. He arrived in 1817 :
This from the Staffordshire Advertiser - obviously trying to pick up some coach trade. 23.8.1817 *

Joseph Alcock, From the Swan Inn, Lad lane, London,
Most respectfully acquaints his Friends and the Public, he has taken the old established Axe Inn, Aldermanbury, London, which, from its recent improvements and local situation, will be found replete with every accommodation for Private Families, Commercial Gentlemen etc.
J A Begs to assure them he has made a selection of the best Wines of the choicest villages, which for richness and flavour cannot be excelled : a plentiful larder will always be supplied, and every attention that can tend to their comfort or merit patronage, diligently observed.
NB Coaches daily to all parts of the Kingdom, Neat Post-Chaies etc
London August 12th 1817. *
