A Cradle of Inventions:
British Patents 1617 to 1895

A fully searchable database of around 520,000 British patent titles, numbers, their dates and inventors.

Adapted from the work of the great Bennet Woodcroft around the mid-19th century, it forms a unique "key" to a treasury of innovations patented from 1617 up to 1895, which triggered the Industrial Revolution, so changing our world forever.

Now including 3,300 early Scottish Patents!
For a brief period, Scotland operated its own patent filing system. Inventors,
patent titles etc are collected here, this information is not available, as far as we know, anywhere else.
