Brand name: HANNINGTON
Company: Hannington and Company (George and Mary Hannington)
Description: Brand name impressed on the face. The brick is buff in color and has a coating of melted
brown slag. The clay property at Swalwell was leased to Hannington in 1846 by Sir Thomas John Clavering of Axwell Park and
Greencroft, Baronet, for a term of 21 years. This lease may have been extended as Mary Hannington was manufacturing firebricks
at the property in 1883 and as late as 1887.
