In 1895, Thomas Godfrey Baynes established the firm in Bexleyheath. Some years later Mr Baynes was joined by his sons Norman and Reggie, and in time Norman’s two sons Michael and John joined the firm. These stronglinks with the Baynes family were maintained until Michael Baynes retired in 1985.The firm’s expansion began in 1915 with the opening of an office in Dartford. Much later, in 1952 the office at Orpington was opened, followed in 1958 by the opening of an office at Welling.
