About the year 1777, a man called Ingram Horne took over an established a paper mill at Buckland. After a chequered history there was a major fire in September 1887.

To help the mill get back on its feet after the fire, Henry Hobday secured the order to make ‘Conqueror’, watermarked business stationery, from London paper merchants Wiggins Teape, in 1888. ‘Conqueror’ was an immediate success, being perceived as much superior to existing business stationery. So, to ensure continuity of supply, Wiggins Teape bought Buckland Mill in 1890.

Production of Conqueror continued until the mill was shut in June 2000. See http://www.dover-kent.co.uk/places/buckland_mill.htm
