Westbury-on-Trym Pottery
The Pottery had previously been run by Stephen Fricker.

c1780-97 Henry Yabbicom I and his father, Roger Yabbicom, ran the Westbury-on-Trym Pottery.

The church rates for Westbury show the Pottery was unoccupied after 1797. Henry Yabbicom I and Roger Yabbicom had moved to the St Philip’s Pottery 3 around that date.

St Philip’s Pottery 3
It seems likely that Henry Yabbicom I and his father, Roger, took over the Pottery previously occupied by William Maynard II.

Henry Yabbicom I took over the Pottery when his father, Roger, died in 1810.

From 1812 his sons, Henry Yabbicom II and Thomas Bawn Yabbicom, were also operating a Pottery in Avon Street, manufacturing stone ware.  It seems likely that the two Potteries shared the same premises and are both referred to as St Philip’s Pottery 3.

The Pottery was advertised to let in 1844 and it seems to have been taken over by William Henry Pardoe by 1847.

Temple Back Pottery 2

1825 The property referred to above appears to have been purchased by the Bristol Gas Light Company as they were paying Poor Rates on the premises (St Philip’s-PR).

Note: By 1833 Yabbicom was again paying rates on the premises but it is not clear from the documents whether, during this period, he had built a second Pottery on the land he leased from the Riddle family which was referred to in 1829 as a ‘Pottery lately erected’ (see below).

St Philip’s Pottery 3
By 1810, when they first appear in the Port Books, Henry Yabbicom I’s sons, Henry Yabbicom II and Thomas Bawn Yabbicom, had established a Pottery in Avon Street manufacturing stone ware.  It seems likely that they shared the same premises as their father who carried on his own Pottery at the same time, and they are both referred to as St Philip’s Pottery 3.
