Our book is dedicated to William James Marston, on the occasion of the 125th anniversary of the business he founded that continues to bear his name.
Having walked the same pavements , maintained some of the same buildings and served the same community that he did , it is little wonder that his values became ours.
Our anniversary book describes how the company has managed to adapt and thrive over the last 125 years, when so many businesses flounder. The foreword written by Peter Leach, a leading advisor to family businesses sites the Marston family values having been fundamental to our success.
We hope you enjoy reading this book about our family business and its development spanning three centuries. The book is not available to purchase as it was written principally to mark the 125th anniversary for the family and employees.
As with all family run companies, business and family life become entwined so some images and text considered personal have been removed or redacted from the pdf file of the book (below) page numbers will not be accurate so the index has also been removed.
"We are a local family owned, Fulham based property company who has stayed true to our roots and remain in the area where our ancestors founded our company 125 years ago.
It is important to us to develop and maintain buildings carefully and respect their history whilst ensuring they are relevant and safe for current and future uses. We play an active role in our local communities, and work hard to look after the environment, our residents and occupiers and our employees. We take a long-term view and look forward to celebrating many more anniversaries in the future.”
