History About Charles L King & Co
In 1911 Charles L. King & Company was formed, and business was conducted from “Belmont” until Office premises were rented in Market Street in 1914. Later premises were purchased a few doors down at 7 Market Street. Charles Craigie Wood (Grandson) joined the Firm in 1946, aged 16 years. When Mr. King passed away in 1952 aged 85 years, Charles and Hedley Sampson (Bookkeeper) purchased the Company and formed a partnership which lasted for 20 years, until Mr Sampson’s death in 1972 Charles consequently purchased the remainder of the Company. He married Elizabeth Smith in 1955, and in 1977 their eldest son Gary joined the Company, after completing his Real Estate Course at R.M.I.T. During the 1978 a second Office was opened in Echuca in rented premises at 139 Hare Street. Gary moved to Echuca in 1979, and later managed the Echuca Business. He and Robyn McKee were married in 1989. Charles Wood retired in 1990, and the Cohuna Company was purchased by two staff members – Colin Ibbs & Richard Leitch.
