Our History

Our family began building way back in in the 19th century, with Richard King. The business has been passed down the generations, often with father, son and grandson all working together. The business wasn't named until the era of Frank King (Richard's grandson). The earliest bill we've found with the F. King and Sons name on dates to 1887 (and was for timber).
Thomas King, Frank's father was the second generation - both he and Frank's primary trade was carpentry, but during this period, right up until the mid 20th century the firm employed an average of 15 men - consisting of bricklayers, carpenters, painters and labourers.
Frank's sons Syd and Ted worked as a carpenter and a bricklayer respectively.
Roger, the fifth generation was a carpenter by trade like his father.
Paul and Trevor are the current generation.
