Born May 16, 1810 in Staffordshire, England.
Taylor came to the United States in 1829 and settled for a time in Jersey City. He worked in the potteries of Troy, Indiana; Orrsville, Kentucky; Cincinnati, Ohio, and East Liverpool, Ohio, to master his craft before moving to Trenton in 1852. He set out in business with Henry A. Speeler creating the first English-style pottery in Trenton: cane-colored fireproof ware, Rockingham and Queensware. He also invented and manufactured Whiteware in this pottery and was recognized by Philadelphia's Franklin Institute with a medal for the exhibit of his porcelain invention. He retired in 1875 and pursued his interest in Freemasonry as a member of mercer Lodge No. 50.
Died Aug. 17, 1887, at his home at the corner of South Clinton Ave. and Tyler St.
