Cox and Company is a family owned and managed business, established in Saint Lucia in 1926 by Clive and Hettie Beaubrun. As the business evolved and grew during its early years, Clive and Hettie maintained their family’s best interests as their top priority. They decided that they needed to separate their home from the business and dreamed specifically of a home outside of Castries with a view and a garden for their children to explore. Like with everything else they did, through careful planning, years of budgeting and sacrifice, in 1942, Clive and Hettie purchased Diamond Jubilee Lodge from the Harris Family. It was a lovely home on Morne Fortune, overlooking the harbor and the town of Castries.
The old, small, wooden structure posed many challenges and demanded much refurbishing and for a while they were torn between renovating the existing structure so that the historic integrity would be maintained or starting fresh with stronger, more durable concrete. They found a happy medium. They decided to build something that would last for generations, could be expanded to accommodate the requirements of the family and be designed to honour the original architecture. They furnished it tastefully with all the household fittings and furniture that they had been accumulating over the years for this very purpose.
Diamond Jubilee was renamed St. Mark’s by Father Harcount, who was the homes first visitor. Today it stands proudly offering breathtaking views of Castries and boasts a perfectly manicured garden.
