Hi,
Thanks for replies- much appreciated.

That has been a great help. My uncle told me that I was related to someone who invented the teasmade called Rowbottom. Now just need to work out how he may fit into my tree. Manchester fits with family.
Many thanks,
Angela

Google for info!

This is just one of the many items which you will find:

On 17 December 1891, Samuel Rowbottom, of 82 Abbey Road, Derby, applied for a patent for his Automatic Tea Making Apparatus, the patent being granted in 1892. It used a clockwork alarm clock, a gas ring and pilot light. There is a photograph in existence of Samuel displaying his Automatic Tea Maker on an exhibition stand. Although there is no evidence that he commercially produced his tea maker, the concept he invented of using the steam from boiling water to force the water out through a tube into the teapot is still in use today.

Hi,
Is there anyone out there that is related to or could provide information on Samuel Rowbottom the man who invented the teasmade?

I'm afraid that I have no dates or places.
Thanks,
Angela
