Prince Edward Island Pottery opened in 1880 on the outskirts of Charlottetown as a corporation to fill local demand for simple household wares, brick, and tile. The business was founded by Fredrick W Hyndman, a native of P.E.I, retired Royal Navy Officer and hydro graphic surveyor, and then a Charlottetown insurance agent. Hyndman was the manager of two operations with Benjamin Godfrey employed to operate the brickyard and Oswald Hornsby as foreman for the pottery. The potter, Oswald Hornsby, was born in Londonderry, Ireland, and came to Nova Scotia in the early 1850's. The similarity of some PEI wares to nineteenth-century English earthenware of the Sunderland area suggests that he was acquainted with the industry there before emigration. Hornsby moved to Charlottetown with his wife and family in 1879 to supervise construction of the pottery. It was in operation, except for the brick kiln, by the spring of 1880. A newspaper article in early 1883 provided the first indication that the PEI Pottery was not doing well when it noted "the company have not yet met the success they anticipated when they started the works in 1880." The domestic market was too small to support local manufacturing since inexpensive mass-produced British imports were available at low prices. According to William Casford, clay was dug at Inkerman, P.E.I. When this supply was exhausted, shoreline clay was collected at Rocky Point and delivered by horse and wagon, by way of the Rocky Point- Charlottetown ferry. At the pottery the clay was processed in a large horse-powered pug mill.
