Joseph Goodman and Potto Brown met when they were at school together at Slepe Hall. Together they became business partners and took over running of the mill in 1821 after Potto's father, William, retired. Following Goodman's death in 1844, Brown continued to expand the business by building mills at St Ives and Godmanchester with the help of Goodman's sons.
