Footnote: John Davenport trained as a potter with Thomas Wolfe of Stoke, Staffordshire, in 1785. By 1794 he had founded his own pottery and begun producing earthenware and porcelain of such quality that the Prince of Wales, later to become King George IV, ordered services of the finest and most valuable kinds. When John retired in 1830 the firm carried on under various family members until it was acquired by Burleigh Pottery in 1887.
