Further historical notes

Sandell Perkins which merged with Travis & Arnold was listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1986. At that time it had 49 branches principally based around London and the South-East. Sandell Perkins was formed in 1970 following the merger of Sandell Smythe & Drayson and Ingram Perkins. Together with a number of smaller acquisitions they acquired Broad & Co. (formed in 1881) in 1975.

Sandell Smythe & Drayson was a 1964 merger of Joseph Sandell (formed in 1812) and Smythe & Drayson which had itself formed in 1954 from Geo. Drayson & Son (formed 1875) and J. & A.S. Smythe (formed 1785).
