A bit about the history of our logo which goes back to at least 1828 to Woolwich High Street in London, England. Here stands a pub called the Coopers Arms, it is also known at Plaisted Wine House. This pub was owned by Thomas Plaisted who was born in 1777 in London. There is still some confusion as to where his family line is from.
Thomas Plaisted married Lydia Wiles and have at least ten children. The two eldest surviving sons inherited the pub the eldest, John selling out to his brother Thomas Wilkes Plaisted within two years.
Outside the pub is the gaslamp where my business logo originated. In fact it still stands there today on the Woolwich High Street.
My husband is a direct descendant of John Plaisted. John ended up in Australia. One of his sons – Arthur married and went to live in New Zealand, where the family line is still living today.
