HAWLEY James Alfred

See the Potteries List section for the Temple Back Pottery 1.

The Pottery had previously been run by James George Hawley until his death in 1888.

1888-1901 George Henry Hawley and James Alfred Hawley, the sons of James George Hawley, ran the Temple Back Pottery 1.

It seems likely that their brothers Herbert and Joseph Hawley were also partners in the Pottery during this period.

The Pottery then closed.
