    George Charles Hollebone is the son of George Charles and Susan Winch. George Charles’ sister Caroline Hollebone married Robert Geer, the previous licensee at the Swan. Another sister, Mary Ann, married William Inman, who in 1861 was the licensee of the King & Queen, Marlborough Place, Brighton, which was probably the main coaching inn to London at this time. In the 1861 census Caroline Geer, Robert’s daughter, is a barmaid at the King & Queen. **
