In writing this book, I have attempted to take the reader on a journey from
1515 to the present day, discovering the history of the R J Balson & Son family
in the butchery trade in Bridport, Dorset.
Reaching our Quincentennial anniversary is a remarkable achievement. The
first time any British family firm has reached this milestone.
I hope this book is a suitable souvenir to mark this momentous occasion.

Richard John Balson
