June-November 1904, p.519. (See also page 4.)

    John Davenport (1765-1848) trained as a potter with Thomas Wolfe of Stoke, Staffordshire in 1785. By 1794 he had founded his own pottery factory counting the Prince of Wales among his customers. After Davenport’s retirement in 1830, his firm carried on under various family members until it was acquired by Burleigh Pottery in 1887.
