The Ridgway family was one of the important dynasties manufacturing Staffordshire pottery.  From the 1790's to the late 20th century, there were several family members in the pottery business, all using different versions of the Ridgway, and sometimes Ridgways, name.  William Ridgway and William Ridgway & Sons, and Ridgways of Shelton are a few examples.  They not only had different names, but they changed they frequently, as they became part of, or got of, several partnerships.   The Ridgway name is best known for transferware printed earthenware for the American market, however, they also made bone china pieces starting in 1808. Ridgway Pottery later merged with the Booths & Colclough China Company during the 1940's, and later became a part of Royal Doulton in the 1960's.
