The Octagon Brewery, which was located in Martin Street, Plymouth, was founded by a Mr Joseph Godfrey in 1861.

In March 1898 the business and its 38 licensed houses was sold to a Mr W Gilling, of London, for 148,000 and it was incorporated as a limited liability company in January 1899.  The Brewery was making 13,000 barrels beer a year at that time.
