Thrupp & Maberly Coachbuilders

In 1858, coach painter George Maberly partnered up with coachbuilder George Herbert Thrupp to found the company of Thrupp & Maberly Ltd. The prestigious firm of Charles Thrupp and Co. had been building coaches in London since 1760 and had showrooms on fashionable Oxford Street.

The nineteenth century was the pinnacle of horse drawn carriage making, with half a million in use by the end of the century. Thrupp & Maberly, with a reputation for quality and innovation, had established themselves as one of the very best. Thrupp & Maberly adjusted quickly to the advent of the motor car and excelled during the age when motor cars, just like carriages, were custom built for each individual owner. Soon the majority of contracts coming in were from Rolls-Royce, and for a long time, the two companies enjoyed a thriving business relationship.
