Early in their married life they lived over their bakery in Bridge Street, Waterford. They had a good trade in bread and made ships' biscuits and large plain waterbiscuits. Baking of sweet biscuits was started in 1851 when Richard S Haughton joined William and a shop on the quays was opened. William wished to develop the business and a shop on the quays was opened. Thereafter premises in Bristol and Liverpool were sought, but finally he decided on an old coach factory in Peters Row, Dublin. They moved to Dublin in 1852. They lived in various premises before eventually settling in Ballybrack House, Ballybrack.
