College Arms

Cameron Street?

Is this the Black Swan under another name? The only mention of “College Arms” is in the list of licensed publicans for the year 1830, under “New Licenses Granted”:

Over the next few months, Caryl is in trouble for habouring:

20 December 1830: charged with having harboured in his public house, at Launceston, for the purpose of tippling after 8 o’clock, two convicts — charge dismissed.

28 March 1831: charged with allowing a prisoner to remain in his house, whose pass had expired two days ; fined £2 and costs.

20 June 1831 : charged with harbouring two convicts illegally at large. Decision referred to the quarter sessions, it being the third offence.

Then in July, the licence for the Black Swan, Brisbane Street is transferred from Caryl to Neil Campbell:
