Sampson DANIEL 1729 - ? (The Brownhills Daniels of Burslem and Cobridge)
Born in 1729 to Thomas Daniel and Alice Daniel (Nee Gent), Sampson was the brother of Ralph (who introduced the Plaster of Paris moulding technique) and like most other members of the Daniel family at that time Sampson was in the business of manufacturing salt glazed pottery.
Sampson married Elizabeth Barnett and had a son who was also named Sampson, and this younger Sampson for a short time had a business connection with his cousin, John Daniel (of the New Hall Co.).
Sampson Daniel (the elder) was declared bankrupt in 1767. His pottery was later sold to William Adams.
In Stoke Museum there is a scrolled handle jug that was commissioned by John Daniel and produced in his New Hall works with decoration by Fidelle Duvivier that John presented to his cousin, the young Sampson. Below the spout of this beautifully glazed jug is a monogram showing the initials SD.
