From setting up a cycle repair shop at the back of his parents’ home in Oxford, William Morris soon progressed to his own car business. Inspired by Ford’s manufacturing methods, he began assembling his own cars in a former military college at Cowley in 1913. Morris rapidly grew to be the country’s leading car maker, taking over other manufacturers and suppliers along the way. Many of Morris' investments were from his personal wealth and he was noted for benevolence to medicine and charity.
