Bovis Homes was originally started in 1885 by Charles William Bovis trading as CW Bovis & Co and operated as a general builder. Like many of the present day house builders, Bovis Homes benefited from the post-war housing shortage. Despite acquiring land for housing during the 1950’s, it was not until 1965 that Bovis Homes was formed as a separate house building business.

Bovis acquired Malcolm Sanderson and RT Warren (in 1967) and later added Page Johnson and Varney Holdings. By 1972 Bovis had become the second largest house builder in the UK, building 2659 homes during 1973.

In March 1974 the company became part of the P&O Group. During the seventies, Bovis reduced the number of new homes built to focus on profitability. The company began to expand again during the eighties forming a Retirement Living subsidiary in 1986.

In 1996 it acquired Britannia Homes to expand into the south-west and de-merged with P&O in 1997. Under the name Bovis Homes the company was floated on the London Stock Exchange as Bovis Homes Group plc.
