Ada Kate Hazell
Ada Kate Hazell was born in Farnham in 1866 to Charles and Harriett Hazell. On the 1881, 1891, and 1901 Censuses, the Hazells lived at 8 Castle Street, Farnham. On the 1901 census Ada is described as 'Living on own means'.
Ada was a student at Farnham School of Art, but was also in charge of a group of Farnham ladies, at the pottery, who designed Sgraffito Wares. In October 1897 Ada registered a trademark (No. 208222) for Farnham Sgraffito Pottery (see the Marks page).
