Worcesters engine Featured 21 Jul 2003 Print

Worcesters engine

Worcester's engine. Historical artwork of the second Marquis of Worcester's engine. The design was granted a patent in 1663. Worcester called it his water commanding engine, as its function was to raise water. This is often credited with being the first steam engine, however some believe that it was actually operated by a manual pump. It might have been used for supplying water to canals, or for draining water from mines or marshes. A model of the engine was demonstrated at Vauxhall, London from 1663 until 1667, the year of Worcester's death. Published in History and progress of the steam engine, England, 1830
