Enoch & Edward Wood

Enoch & Edward Wood are listed at Fountain Place, Burslem in  just one directory dated 1841. The history of the Wood firms is complex and this appears to be a short-lived partnership (or trading name) which is not listed by Godden. The Fountain House address was previously in the name of Wood & Caldwell (listed in 1818), then Enoch Wood & Sons (1822 to 1835), and subsequently Enoch Wood alone (1846). The partnership name has been recorded marked only on one relief-moulded jug.
