The Beginning of Rington’s

Samuel Smith was born in Leeds in 1872 and grew up in a small cottage on Ladypit Lane. With an initial investment of £250, Sam Smith started Ringtons with his business partner William Titterington in the Heaton area of Newcastle upon Tyne. An initial stock of tea was purchased and the business begun, delivering direct to customers’ homes.

The business soon flourished and Sam moved to larger premises, buying out William’s share of the business. Ringtons became a family company when Sam’s son Douglas Smith joined, starting as a van boy.
