Clay pipes were introduced to the English in the 16th century, along with tobacco from Virginia. Smoking tobacco was popular among the English people, but resulted in persecution from the church. Never the less, the habit caught on and the simple clay pipe continued to grow in favor until the turn of the 20th Century (Read more about clay pipe history).
