Abstract

The name of the Kingston Cotton Mill remains famous to this day, yet almost nothing is remembered of the details of the company itself. The company was one of the first to be set up under the new Joint Stock Companies Act of 1844. Despite a substantial investment in modern technology, the company was never really a profitable investment for its shareholders. However, it provided employment for a large number of the inhabitants of Hull for nearly 50 years. Litigation following the company’s demise gave rise to the ‘watchdog’ metaphor to describe the role of the company auditors.
