Our History

1907

An estate agency and surveyors called Kibler Morgan was established on High Street in Stratford-upon-Avon.

1937

Sheldon Bosley & Partners was founded in Shipston-on-Stour, by the original Mr Sheldon Bosley. The business was established in the agricultural sector, managing and surveying property and estates as well as conducting auctions at farms. It was so successful that Sheldon opened two more shops, in Moreton-in-Marsh and Stratford-upon-Avon. At this time, Sheldon’s father worked as a partner at an estate agency in Shipston-on-Stour, sparking Sheldon’s interest in the property industry.

1948

Kibler Morgan grew into a family business and renamed Kibler, Morgan & Son. They moved to new premises at Ely Street, where we still operate today, and became highly regarded for their professional integrity.

1975

The Stratford-upon-Avon branch of Sheldon Bosley merged with Kibler, Morgan & Son, later renaming as Sheldon Bosley & Company. Sheldon Bosley & Partners remained as a separate company, still operating in Shipston-on-Stour and Moreton-in-Marsh.

1991

Timothy Lea estate agency was established in Evesham.

1999

Timothy Lea merged with Arthur Griffith & Mumford to become Timothy Lea & Griffiths.

The new Sheldon Bosley Knight head office was established at Stratford-upon-Avon Business and Technology Park. The majority of staff were relocated to work together under one roof, with some sales and lettings staff remaining in our six estate agency branches.
