Twenty-one years after it was first published in 2002, Seven Generations of Success by Nigel Watson celebrates its e-book release. The book details the history of the business and the journey to success of the Carver Group, something we are very proud of.

The book includes a full family tree of the Carver family, following 286 years of the Carver line from Joseph Carver born in 1735 to the most recent addition to the family, in 2021.
