Edward Samuel Ewens, known as Sam, went into partnership with his brother-in-law Alexander Henry Cobb in 1898, forming the company Ewens & Cobb. Unfortunately the Ewens-Cobb partnership ended in a civil action in 1902 which Sam lost, forcing him to sell his home 'Summerlands'.

After losing the Cobb case, Sam went into business with his sons Edward and Percival Charles as Ewens & Sons, which became Ewens & Co when Charles Thristle Pitcher, the son of hotelier Charles Pitcher, became a partner.
