In 1795 James Diamond was the Keeper at the turnpike cottage next to The Crown Inn (later The Monkey House), on the northern approach to Lymington.
The family’s trade became wagon-making and in 1856, descendant Joseph Diamond set up his workshop in Lymington, as a ‘cart and wagon builder, wheelwright and undertaker’. Diamonds built horse-drawn vehicles until the late 1920s.
In 1933, ownership passed to Ken Diamond, who oversaw motorisation and ran Diamond & Son until his well-earned retirement in 1976.
