We were pleased to read a brief history about South Street in Havant, where some of our offices are based, and discover that solicitors have been in South Street since the mid 1750’s.
The piece in PO9 Newspaper looked back 100 years when South Street was the main route to Langstone before the A27 was built. It contained three public houses. One of these still exists, and it is the Old House at Home, one of the oldest buildings in Havant, and right opposite one of our offices.
The Longcroft family moved to Havant in the 1740’s from Portsmouth, this was then to mark the beginning of the Longcrofts many services to Havant which lasted more than 200 years.
George Moody Longcroft and his brother Thomas Frankling Longcroft were solicitors and they practiced in partnership for many years. Five more generations of the Longcrofts went on to become solicitors and carry on their legal services to Havant.
We are pleased to continue to offer a wide range of legal services still today amongst the rich heritage of Havant, where Swain & Co. has been practicing for nearly 10 years.
