The Royal Grafton company was founded in 1876 in Staffordshire England by Alfred Jones.
Originally, A.B. Jones & Sons Ltd. used the trade name "Grafton" and "Royal Grafton" after producing a variety of fine china items, but started to use the company name "Royal Grafton Bone China" after Queen Mary awarded A.B. Jones & Sons with a royal warrant.
