Staffordshire Advertiser, 1829
Trained and accomplished in the art of potting and with experience in all parts of the business he opted to retire at quite a young age on his marriage in 1815. But on the death of father, Josiah Spode II, in 1827, he came out of retirement and ran the business. Sadly this was for just a couple of years until his own death.
He died in 1829 at his home, The Mount, not far from the Spode factory, at the age of 52.
