The firm was founded in 1830 by James Cox and Edward Fordham Flower, the latter leaving to found Flower's Brewery, an important local concern, in the following year; it is the oldest family firm still in existence in Stratford. The building is an unusual survival and important as a reminder of the industrial nature of this area.
