Young’s traces its roots back to 1805, when it was founded by Elizabeth Young and her family who were watermen and fishermen on the Thames at Greenwich. The company has been in continuous growth since that time and have undergone a number of changes of ownership, although the Young’s family remained involved until the late 1980s
