Our History, Our Heritage

'Heritage' is defined as a 'special or individual possession' and for the 280+ years of Jamieson & Carry's existence, this is how the business has been treated - as a family member, with love, care, and consideration.

It was in 1908 that William Whyte Carry purchased and became the sole owner of the business of Geo. Jamieson & Sons which was then at 125 Union Street. The firm has evolved through various families since its establishment in 1733 at "The Head of Broad Street" in Aberdeen.

In 1925, W. W. Carry took the bold decision to purchase and occupy 142 Union Street. Then, in 1933, on the bi-centenary of the original founding of the firm by Alex Forbes, W. W. Carry's son Joseph Robert Carry became a partner and the firm's name was changed to 'Jamieson & Carry'. J R Carry's wife Diana became a partner in 1969.

Their sons, Michael & Peter, became partners in 1969 and 1976 respectively, continuing in business together today with the next generation of the Carry family represented by Michael's sons, Christopher (1998) & Philip (2003), and Peter's son Angus (2010).

The current partnership of Peter, Michael, Christopher, Philip and Angus Carry continues to develop Jamieson & Carry into an indigenous luxury brand, facilitating both traditional and modern means of business.

The partners are supported by a hand-picked team of professionals, each maintaining an educated and professional attitude, keen to assist each other and their clients in a welcoming, inclusive manner.

History is an ongoing process and we hope that you and your family become an important part of ensuring that Jamieson & Carry has, not only a history, but (more importantly) a future.
