Founded by David Francis Haynes in 1879 as an art pottery. In 1882 he purchased the Chesapeake Pottery which had two buildings and a single kiln. The company was called D.F. Haynes & Co. until 1887 when The Chesapeake Pottery Company was organised. The name changed to Haynes Bennett & Co. when he merged with the Edwin Bennett Pottery Company, in 1890. The name then became D.F. Haynes & Son in 1895. Primarily an artist, Haynes was one of the main designers.
His goal was to produce affordable household items of quality. The factory closure date is unknown.
