With the success of the Lonsdale mills in Lincoln (and in conjunction with their expansion across the river into Cumberland), Brown and Ives purchased sites farther up-river for two more mill villages, in 1867 for Ashton and in 1872 for Berkeley, where they continued the company policy of brick for mills and housing. This village and the separate incorporation of the plat as the Berkeley Company commemorate the British philosopher George Berkeley and his famous eighteenth-century sojourn in Middletown, Rhode Island.
