Morland & Co. Ltd, Eagle Brewery, Ock Street, Abingdon, Oxfordshire.

Founded in 1711 as maltsters at West Ilsley by Benjamin Morland. Eagle Brewery acquired 1861 and Abbey Brewery 1866, both in Ock Street. Brewing was concentrated at the Eagle Brewery.

Registered in October 1887. After the purchase of Ruddles Brewery Ltd in 1997, financial problems culminated in the purchase in 1999 by Greene King & Sons Ltd.

The brewery was closed and converted into housing, the brands being transferred to Bury St Edmunds.
