J J Coleman

In 1804, Jeremiah Coleman moved from Bawburgh to Norwich and bought a flourmill. By 1814 he could afford to set up in Stoke Holy Cross watermill, and here he began the manufacture of mustard, which today has become one of Norwich's most important industries. When Coleman died, the business was taken over by his great nephew, Jeremiah James Coleman, who moved it into Norwich to be nearer the railway. The new Coleman works at Carrow were opened in 1856.



Did you know... The city of Norwich is twinned with Rouen in France, Koblenz in Germany, Novi Sad in Serbia, and El Viejo in Nicaragua.
