Our History


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


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.


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.


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.


Timothy Lea estate agency was established in Evesham.


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


Sheldon Bosley & Company merged with Sheldon Bosley & Partners to become Sheldon Bosley Ltd. The Shipston-on-Stour branch remained part of the business and the Moreton-in-Marsh branch was sold.


Knight & Rennie estate agency was established in Leamington Spa, later opening a second branch in Kenilworth.


Longlease Property Management was founded in Great Malvern, Worcestershire.


Timothy Lea & Griffiths acquired Longlease Property Management.


Sheldon Bosley Ltd acquired Knight & Rennie, becoming Sheldon Bosley Knight Ltd.


Sheldon Bosley Knight Ltd acquired Timothy Lea & Griffiths, including Longlease Property Management. As the name was already well known and trusted around Worcestershire, our Evesham branch continues to trade as TL&G.


Sheldon Bosley Knight Ltd acquired Bishop’s Estate Agents in Kineton.

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.
