100 Year History
An insight into the first 100 years of Bevan & Buckland Accountants by Mr Stan Page.
Frank Cecil Bevan set up in sole practice as a Chartered Accountant, as far as I can make out, very early in the first decade of the last century, possibly even as early as 1899. His first office was in the National Bank building on the corner of No. 9 or 10 Wind Street and Green Dragon lane, Swansea. He must have qualified in the 1890’s after serving articles with the firm of Tribe Clarke Cawker & Co. in their offices on the opposite side of Wind Street. (A fellow Articled Clerk and lifelong friend was Sidney Owen who was himself taken, on qualifying, into partnership in that firm, which then became Tribe, Clarke, Cawker, Owen & Co. – and many years later Tribe, Clarke, Owen & Montgomery Williams).

The 1980’s saw a number of developments undertaken by the firm that are still important in the 2020’s. First in 1983, the Partners decided to purchase a small block of fees in Pembroke. This became the base of the Pembroke office, and was initially managed by Charles Clewett who travelled to Pembroke a couple of days a week before permanently transferring to live in Pembrokeshire in the mid 80’s.
