The Australian Mortgage Land & Finance Company was registered in England in 1863, the first Australian Office being opened in Brisbane (as Central Northern Queensland Land Company). The Queensland operations proving unsuccessful, the business was moved to Melbourne with the purchase of Ronald Gibbs & Co in 1865. The Brisbane branch was reopened in 1903, and a Townsville Branch in 1924 (to 1934). The Company’s name was changed in 1910 to Australian Mercantile Land & Finance Co (AML&F). In 1981 AML&F acquired the pastoral agency business of Australian Estates from CSR Ltd.

In 1971 AML&F was acquired by Woodhall Trust plc (UK), which in turn was taken over by Elders IXL in 1982.
