Dates of existence

c.1870 - c.1965


The Roadknights are inextricably linked to the early settler history of Geelong. Pastoralists, Real Estate Agents, Auctioneers, Woolbrokers etc., their name is indelibly connected to land and their pursuits have helped shape the region.

By c.1870 Roadknight & Co. appears to have begun formalised business operations, although the partnership Mackenzie, Roadknight & Co advertised livestock auctions in 1868.

The subdivision and sale of land comprised the bulk of the firm's business over multiple generations of the Roadknight and extended families. Business operations ceased following the death of Frank Cyril Roadknight.
