Prior to 1883 there was scarcely a single Briar pipe manufactured in England. They were all foreign made goods. Later that year, J. S. Weingott conceiving the possibilities that lay in such a non-competitive field, determined to manufacture pipes in England for English customers. His enterprise, at first was regarded askance by others in the trade, while many prognosticated disaster. Undeterred by these ominous forebodings, Mr. Weingott started his industry (S. Weingott & Son), and although it was an uphill struggle at first, he soon became one of the largest pipe factories in the country with a large colonial export: "''Only sixteen years have elapsed since I started my factory, and yet today the industry has grown to such proportions that the men employed in this trade throughout the country have instituted a Pipemaker's Union''" (from a 1899 interview to an English magazine).

Weingott was for most of the XX century THE oldest brand of Pipe manufacturers in London, or at least the oldest legal manufacture registered in the London Directories. Notice the explosion in Pipe making factories by the turn of the century and contrast it with the single mention to Weingott in 1884:
