History of Davies White & Perry
Davies White & Perry’s long history began in 1806 in Newport High Street when Mr Pooler, who had operated on his own for approximately 30 years previous to this, joined with Mr Holland. Mr Pooler had a son and two daughters, sadly the son died at a relatively young age, but the second daughter married Mr Arthur Davies in the late 1800’s who joined his father-in-law in the family business, at which time the firms name was changed to ‘Pooler & Davies’.
Mr T White joined the firm in 1894 and was subsequently made a partner in 1914 until 1940 when he died.
Mr R Davies who, after leaving Clifton College in Bristol, joined the Kings Shopshire Light Infantry in 1914 and was badly wounded at Passiondale in 1917, he subsequently joined the firm in 1921.
In 1926 the firm took over Nock & Son of Shifnal, a partner of which Mr A Perry continued in the firm. It was at this time the name was changed to Davies White & Perry.
In January 1951, after coming out of the Royal Navy, Mr J P Davies joined his father in the family business and took over as principal of the firm in 1967 for a further 43 years until his death in 2010.
After completing his professional certification in Oxford, Mr Andrew J Davies joined the firm in 1984 and worked alongside his Father for many years. He was a Surveyor and Partner in the business for 30 years before passing away in 2014.
Mrs Caroline Cross joined the firm in 2000, working alongside her Father and Brother for many years. Caroline is responsible for the growth of Davies White & Perry’s successful rental department and is now Principal of the firm.
