In the early part of the 19th century, the Mathews family ran a successful business in St. Giles, Oxford. William, the father, was an engraver, while his son Michael Angelo was a stationer and artist’s colourman.

Lacking his father’s talent as an engraver, Michael Angelo turned his attention from stationery to the insurance business, and in 1851 took out his first policy with the United Kingdom Temperance and General Provident Institution.
