Location and period of operation:

Thomas and Benjamin Godwin





Earthenware manufacturers at Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, England. 
  • The brothers Thomas and Benjamin Godwin were in business together at the New Basin Pottery and then at the New Wharf Pottery (these were perhaps the same works which were renamed around 1818). - see map

  • In 1834 Thomas Godwin continued on his own following the death of his brother Benjamin. It is likely that at the same time Benjamin's son - Benjamin E Godwin set up on his own account at a works in Cobridge.
