In 1806, the French Charles Bréquigny established as a freight broker in Antwerp, then a French port. In 1811 he became a shipbroker and left the business to his son-in-law, Bartholomew Kennedy.
In 1869 William Kennedy, Bartholomew's son, went into partnership with John Hunter, an Englishman. Their firm represented important shipping companies such as Lamport & Holt and General Steam Navigation. On Kennedy's death in 1874, Hunter took over the firm and developed an additional activity, salvaging in the river Scheldt.
