Charles Hampshire 

Charles is a second generation auctioneer and valuer covering the South Wales region, East of Carmarthen, for Peter Francis Auctioneers. Having grown up near Exeter, Devon and helping with the family auction business, auctioneering and valuing is somewhat in the blood. Three years studying a Law degree at Aberystwyth University was followed by the opportunity of an auctioneering role with Peter Francis Auctioneers.

Charles is a generalist valuer with specialist interest in wines, whisky and spirits, comics, silver and ceramics, preferably in that order. Passionate about promoting professionalism and high standards within the industry, Charles currently sits on the committee for the National Association of Valuers and Auctioneers (NAVA) whilst also training new auctioneers in becoming qualified, skilled professionals as a consultant.

A proud father of two young children, home life is just as busy. Occasionally there is enough time to swing a golf club and to keep track of the fortunes of Arsenal and the Exeter Chiefs.
