Samuel Bevington & Son
John Bevington

The Bevington family was very active in the Potteries from the mid-19th century. Samuel Bevington worked in Shelton and appears in directories from 1846 to 1864. He took one of his sons, John, into partnership and they are listed in 1856, 1862 and 1864. Thereafter John continued alone and is listed in Hanley from 1860 through to 1889. Godden does not list Samuel Bevington or the partnership, but gives dates for John Bevington as 1872-92.

The partnership registered two jug designs on the same day in 1855 and John registered one ornate design in 1881. No other moulded jugs have yet been noted.
