Frank B Mason
Established in 1833, Frank B Mason and Co. are a well known and respected estate agent selling property in Pembrokeshire for over 150 years. (Now with five offices throughout the county.) The original business started in 1833 and was acquired soon afterwards by Richard Mason. Back then the business was mainly involved in printing, property, lettings and financing. Richard Mason left the business to his son Frank Britten Mason (pictured) who took over in the early 1900s. Frank Britten Mason was also instrumental in bringing about the Freedom of the Press Act of Parliament which then enabled the Tenby Observer to access the previously private Town Council meetings. Frank B Mason was a blunt, heavily built man with a sea-faring background who took over the Tenby Observer (now running for over 150 years) and one of Tenby’s local papers when he was just 25. His father had founded it as part of a family business which embraced building, auctioneering and estate agency. The firm was the town’s biggest employer in the late 1890s and early1900s.The company first got involved in holiday lettings around 1900 and that side of the business has gone from strength to strength since then.
