Admin History

Administrative History The firm of Lea and Couchman was established in Henley in Arden from the late eighteenth century, but by 1841 had been replaced by that of E. L. Gibbs and Thomas Barnes Couchman, subsequently Couchman and Sons. The firm continued under this name until at least 1892, but by 1900 had become Couchman and Christophers, with the partnership of Theodore Christophers. Soon after this George Frederick Lodder joined the firm which in the 1904 directory appears as Couchman, Christophers and Lodder. By 1916 it was Christophers and Lodder, although Theodore Christophers had died by 1912. At some date between 1924 and 1932 the firm became G.F Lodder Co (subsequently Sons), under which name it still functions.
