Allied English Potteries,

1964 the Lawley Group was merged with Thomas C. Wild and Sons Ltd[1] and changed its name to Allied English Potteries (AEP)[2]. Subsidiaries included Shore and Coggins, Chapmans (Longton), Paragon China Co, Alcock, Lindley and Bloore[3].

1964 Allied English Potteries, which was expanding very fast, acquired Royal Crown Derby[4]

1967 Standard Industrial Group purchased 58% of Allied English Potteries in exchange for 8 million shares which gave S. Pearson and Son a majority holding in SIG[5].

1969 Was one of S. Pearson and Son's quoted subsidiaries at the time of the flotation of the parent company[6].

1971 S. Pearson and Son acquired Doulton and Co and the outstanding interests in Allied English Potteries that it did not already own[7]. As a result Royal Albert, as a part of Allied English Potteries, joined with Royal Doulton. Thus three key names – Royal Doulton, Royal Albert, and Mintons – came under the umbrella brand of Doulton Home.
