Nelson Barbour

One occasionally sees his name printed as Nelson Homer Barbour. This is wrong. The British patent for his steam generating machine gives his middle name as "Horatio."

See: Bennet Woodcroft: Alphabetical Index of Patentees and Applicants of Patents for Invention for the Year 1870, London, 1871, page 12.
