Administrative history

Barclay, Pallett and Co. Ltd. (BPC Ltd) were incorporated in 1907 and were the successors to the firm, Messrs Pallett, Barclay and Co. millers and seed merchants at North Walsham and Aylsham who themselves had inherited the business of Press and Pallett, millers and malsters at North Walsham and Cromer in the 1890s. BPC Ltd in 1907 acquired the business of Benjamin Cook, miller and seed merchant at Millgate, Aylsham and in 1914 expanded further by purchasing the business of Wroxham Mills Ltd. Its head office was at Tudor House in North Walsham. In 1967 the board recommended to the shareholders the purchase of its share-capital by a Unilever subsidiary, Blackfriars Nominees Ltd, and was amalgamated with Tyrrell and Byford Ltd to become Tyrrell Byford and Pallett. The firm was sold in 1990.
