The licensing records show that in 1942 or 43, the license was "Suspended for duration" (of the war). It seems that the pub probably never re-opened; the license was surrendered on May 3rd 1946.
A report in the Ipswich Journal** on 03 Jun in 1837 stated that Robert Koipe COBBOLD of the Eye Brewery was retiring from business & was looking to sell various Inns & Public Houses including the Swan Rishangles.
