The original Black Swans at Chartwell were originally a gift to Sir Winston Churchill from Robert Sassoon in 1927, More recently Eb and Flo (two previous black swans) were killed by a dog and a fox. Although the swans have been killed over the years, they have always been replaced. There are currently two residing at Chartwell.
