During the early part of the 20th century Varleys of Whitby were a prominent Yorkshire family run business supplying the finest quality 18th century style furniture to clients in Britain and America. Running in the first three decades, Ernest William Varley (1876-1952), accompanied by his elder brother and son, who were both called Tom, ran their business from a workshop in Blackburn's Yard, Church Street, Whitby. Together they established a highly successful and reputable name in the furniture trade. Predominantly specialising in works to order they pride themselves on their quality, style and traditional techniques.
