Notes on Elliott Brothers (London) Ltd: William Elliott was born in either 1780 or 1781 and apprenticed to the instrument maker William Blackwell in 1795. In 1804 Elliott started his own company to make drawing instruments, scales, and scientific instruments. In 1850, his two sons Charles and Fredrick joined his business. The company prospered, and manufactured a range of surveying, navigational, and other instruments. William Elliott died in 1853. In the 1850's the company began manufacturing electrical instruments, which were used by researchers such as James Clerk Maxwell and the Admiralty. In the 1950's–60's Elliott Brothers played an early role in the development of computers in the United Kingdom, the Elliott 152 computer appeared in 1950.
