I'm trying to find out some history about Black Swan Hotel around the early 1900.

My Grand Mother Beatrice Hudson was born there in 1902 and her grandfather Samuel and Barbara Hudson were publican's there around the 1900s.

Would any one there know how long they lived at the hotel and who built it in 1899 - as my Samuel was a carpenter by trade before becoming a publican.
