See the Potteries List section for the St Philip’s Pottery 5.

It is not known when the Pottery was established, but certainly before January 1816 when the Wilcox, Cook and Cole partnership was dissolved.

Pre 1816 Wilcox, Cook & Company ran the St Philip’s Pottery 5.

This was a partnership of John Hilhouse Wilcox, Thomas Homans Cook and John Cole.  This may have been the potter John Cole I, who ran the St Philip’s Pottery 6. The partnership was dissolved in January 1816.
