The story of the Booths Pottery started in 1864, when Thomas Booth, then a coal miner, started manufacturing earthenware in partnership with a John Evans. The partnership was dissolved in 1868 when Booth went into a new partnership with William Hales Turner, and traded as Thomas Booth & Co. In 1872 Thomas introduced his son Thomas Gimbert to the business and the name was changed to Thomas Booth & Son, until 1873 when he died and the name changed again to Thomas G Booth.

The name of this much loved family pottery saw many more changes over the next century, but perhaps one of the more significant was brought about by the amalgamation with Colcloughs Ltd, to form Booths and Colclough Ltd. In 1955 the company through further amalgamation became Ridgway, Adderley, Booths & Colclough Ltd, until later that year being simply renamed Ridgway Potteries Ltd. The patterns of all potteries are of course now owned by the Royal Doulton Group
