J W Pankhurst & Co






 

Location and period of operation:

J W Pankhurst & Co

Hanley

1850

1883

 (See sources)

Operating at the Charles Street Works (to 1883) and the Old Hall Street works, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent.
Producers of earthenware and ironstone.

NOTE: " & CO" was added from 1852.

For a brief period (1850-1) seems to have operated as C. Meigh, Son & Pankhurst at the Old Hall works. Both Meigh and Pankhurst seem then to have continued as separate manufacturing companies at the same works. 
It was not unusual for manufacturers to share works.

Preceded by William Ridgway
Succeeded by Johnson Bros. after Pankhurst went bankrupt.
