Originally brewing at Sowerby Bridge as Hainsworth and Fielding in partnership with Edward Hainsworth. The partnership was dissolved on 16 August 1855. "All debts due to and owing by the said co-partnership will be received and paid by the said Edward Hainsworth by whom the said business in future will be carried on."
