Extent: 120 files
Administrative History:

This collection contains records of various British vinegar producing companies that united to form British Vinegars Limited (BVL). Dates of amalgamation of the various companies with BVL are given in the development chart at the end of this introduction.

 

Records date from 1747 to 1960. The earlier and greater bulk of records concern Beaufoy and Company of South Lambeth which became part of BVL at its formation in 1932.

 

BEAUFOY AND COMPANY

 

Mark Beaufoy (1718-1782) established a manufactory of vinegar and 'mimicked wines' in the early 1740s at Cuper's Garden, south of the River Thames (see B/BFY/18-19). In 1810 the company moved to South Lambeth, between Vauxhall and Stockwell, on part of Noel Caron's estate. The Beaufoy family's connection with vinegar production ended in 1941 when George Maurice Beaufoy (1893-1941) was killed by enemy action in the yard.

 

The above and further information concerning Beaufoy and Company may be obtained from an article by Barbara Kerr, published in History Today July 1973, entitled 'The Beaufoys of Lambeth'.
