He formed a partnership with William Pownall, a Liverpool merchant, and Joseph Poulson, a local potter. Manufacturing began in the newly erected pottery in May, 1796. His son, Herbert, joined the partnership in 1817 taking over after his father died in 1836.
The business was incorporated in 1884 as Mintons Ltd. The original pottery was closed in 1992 with the name still being used at other Doulton facilities. Godden's Encyclopaedia of British Pottery and Porcelain Marks cites mark #2717 as used in the 1951+ time period.
