Summary of operating dates and proprietors

1832 Thomas Bullock I, trading as Thomas Bullock & Son.

The pottery closed.

From 1832 to 1833 Thomas Bullock I, trading as Thomas Bullock and Son, was listed in the directories as an earthenware potter at 95 Thomas Street.  The entry for 1833 may have been a mistake as in October 1832 the pottery was advertised to let: ‘Earthen-ware pottery. To let, all that eligible, compact, and convenient earthen-ware pottery, with the dwelling-house attached thereto, situate in Thomas Street, and lately in the occupation of Messrs. Thomas Bullock & Son, who have been obliged to give up the business from want of sufficient capital for carrying on with advantage.  The premises have been lately fitted up at considerable expense, and as every necessary apparatus has been left, together with the fixtures, moulds, etc., etc. (which may be taken at a valuation) the pottery can be put to work immediately.  This affords an excellent opportunity for the employment of a small capital, as it is well known that the supply of earthenware manufactured in Bristol is quite unequal to the demand’.

The pottery does not seem to have operated after 1832.
