Sargood, Son & Ewen

The firm of Sargood, So & Ewen was established in Melbourne, Australia in 1848 by Mr Frederick James Sargood as an import business. Mr John Alexander Ewen joined the business in the early 1850’s and premises were opened throughout New South Wales and South Australia. The firm was later joined by F. J. Sargood’s son, Sir Frederick Thomas Sargood. The first New Zealand branch was opened in Dunedin in 1863 and was primarily involved in drapery and clothing; though they also had departments for stationery fancy goods, chemists, tobacconists and leather goods.
