TitleEdward John and Son, agricultural merchant of Cowbridge Records
Creator(s)Edward John and Son
BackgroundEdward John set up in business as an agricultural merchant in Cowbridge, Glamorgan, some time between 1875 and 1881. Before this, he had been an agent for the seed and manure merchants Hall, Reynolds and Co. At some point between 1926 and 1965, the firm became a limited liability company, Edward John and Son Ltd. By 1968, the company appears to have become part of Rank Hovis McDougall Agicultural Industries Ltd, although still trading under it own name. The business had ceased trading by 1978.
