  • Geoffrey Godden notes: "Contemporary advertisements and some directories list 'Hackwood, Dimmock & Co.' - a style not included in rate records. It is very probable that 'Hackwood & Co' and 'Hackwood, Dimmock & Co' were one and the same firm. Chaffers' mark handbook lists the mark 'Hackwood Dimmock & Co.' In some rate lists (1822 and 1825) this firm is listed as William Hackwood & Co." - Encyclopedia of British Pottery & Porcelain Marks.

  • At the time of the dissolution of the partnership in November 1827 the partners were William Hackwood jun., Thomas Dimmock and James Keeling.
