The history of tobacco in Kendal starts here, with Thomas Harrison bringing from Scotland not only the secrets of snuff manufacture, but 50 odd ton of second hand equipment — all by horseback — back in 1792. Harrison passed the company and equipment down to his son-in-law, Samuel Gawith, whose company Samuel Gawith & Co, continues to this day. Upon his death, Samuel's two sons inherited the properties, one of whom split off with Henry Hoggarth, one of two administrators of the original business, to create Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. Today the two companies have merged again, with both being run as separate brands from the one warehouse.
