Frederick Winton Smith had been born in Irchester, Northamptonshire in about 1880. By 1911 he had started a small business at 26, Mill Road, Cambridge, as a pork butcher, and he and his wife Ellen were living there that year. The business expanded quickly and within a few years there were branches across Cambridge, one in Newmarket and another in London. In 1916 he was listed at 73a, Burleigh Street, Cambridge (Kelly). In November 1919, the Mayor of Cambridge formally opened a new head office and bacon-curing factory for the company at Wellington House, East Road, Cambridge.
