Starting from humble beginnings, David's grandfather (Alan) started the rounds from Paignton, Ashburton and surrounding villages around 100 years ago on a horse and carriage. Stories have been told to us of stopping in the pubs on the route and his horse having to take him home!1916
David's father, Bill, then took the reins. He took over visiting Barton every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Ashburton every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday until being bombed whilst in Barton during the war.1930-43
David learned his trade by going on the same rounds with Bill, ultimately taking over from him due to ill health.1951
Ashburton was a prominent town for Jonas Fishmongers as this is where David met his wife Cynthia at 22 years of age. Cynthia teamed up with David and also became well known in the communities. They went on to have three children, Martin, Michelle and Steven. All took an interest in the trade and helped the family business flourish.1958
