W & H Marriage & Sons has been a family run flour milling company for almost two hundred years. Founders William and Henry Marriage started the business aged only seventeen, following the death of their father. It is said that the Marriage family had been farmers and millers in mid-Essex since the seventeenth century.
During the intervening centuries, new innovations were introduced by the family; however producing superior quality flour and offering good customer service has remained a consistent focus. Sampson David Marriage, father of current Director, George Marriage, had a keen interest in organic production before it became high profile and developed a system of paying farmers more for growing better quality wheat.
Today the fifth and sixth generations of the Marriage family are continuing the milling tradition started by their ancestors William and Henry Marriage back in 1824.
