Davey Paxman Steam Engines and Boilers – Late 19th / early 20th Century Private Installations – mainly for Electric Lighting

Compiled by Richard Carr This document last revised: 15 April 2010

Explanatory Notes

The table below shows entries extracted from the surviving Paxman copy order books for the period from 1882 to 1910 inclusive. Abbreviations in the copy order books have been expanded to aid understanding and remove ambiguity.

It is possible that some of the entries below may have been for commercial, rather than private, installations but have been included so that they can be investigated further if desired.

Paxman was a noted designer and manufacturer of boilers as well as steam engines. Some of the boilers mentioned below may have been supplied to raise steam for other makes of steam engine.

Unless otherwise specified, HP in the descriptions below is Nominal Horse Power (NHP) – a measure entirely different from Brake Horse Power (BHP). Information about NHP can be found at www.paxmanhistory.org.uk/nhp-defn.htm

Descriptions and pictures of the different types of engine can be found on the Paxman History website at www.paxmanhistory.org.uk

Double cylinder engines have two cylinders of the same size, each fed with steam at the same pressure, unlike compounds in which steam exhausted from the smaller bore high-pressure cylinder is then fed to the larger bore low-pressure cylinder to do more work.

A ‘Loco Boiler’ is a locomotive type boiler, of which Paxman sold large numbers for stationary applications.

Text in italics indicates comment(s) by this document’s compiler.

The fourth column in the table below shows cylinder bore(s) and stroke and/or boiler Working Pressure.

Note on Order No. 3316: Dr Frankland is believed to be Sir Edward Frankland, a noted chemist of his day. Frankland died on 9th August 1899 and was buried ‘near his home in Reigate’. The fact that there is no despatch date in the order book suggests that the order lapsed or was cancelled on his death.

Tisbury (Wiltshire).
(Believed to have been for Pythouse (Fane-Benett family) – see note below)

02-06-93

Note on Order No. 4160: Alex Walford’s grandfather was a gardener at Pythouse up to 1912. Alex’s mother was at Pythouse as a girl and remembered seeing the Paxman engine there, through the window of the engine house which is near the large stable block. Alex himself has seen the engine house which he does not consider would have been large enough to accommodate the engine under O No. 3990. Its size would be right for the 6 HP Undertype of O No. 4160. Alex thinks there may have been a connection between the occupants of Pythouse and nearby Wardour Castle and that O No. 3990 may have been for the Castle. However this needs confirmation.)

A Colchester Compound Engine and generator were also installed at Worth Abbey, Sussex – see photograph and caption on page 214 of Steam and the Road to Glory – The Paxman Story, Andrew Phillips, Hervey Benham Charitable Trust 2002. Thus far it has not been possible to identify the order under which the engine was supplied.

Note 1 – Berechurch Hall, Colchester

In 1882 the Essex brewer Octavius Coope MP largely rebuilt the historic Berechurch Hall on the outskirts of Colchester. The new buildings were fitted throughout with 200 Swan lights installed by Crompton, with current supplied by four Bürgin dynamos driven by a Paxman engine. It was probably the first private house built in Europe to be completely fitted with electricity from its construction. Full reports appeared in the technical press.

see Steam and the Road to Glory – The Paxman Story, Andrew Phillips, Hervey Benham Charitable Trust 2002 p. 158

Note 2 – Windsor Castle

One of the earliest Paxman ‘Windsor’ engines. It was installed in Windsor Castle in early 1886 as part of the Castle's first electric light plant. Queen Victoria subsequently granted James Paxman permission to use the ‘Windsor’ name for his new range of engines.


Additional Notes

The Economic boiler was a highly successful Paxman design, patented in 1875 The return-tube design was a major improvement on the single flue Cornish boiler and the twin flue Lancashire boiler which were in general use at the time. The Economic remained in production, with various improvements, up to the late 1960s when Paxman ceased making large shell boilers.

The Essex boiler was another Paxman design. This was a vertical type of boiler – see www.paxmanhistory.org.uk/vertblrs.htm

Colonel R E Crompton, W H Massey (and Vincent Allpress), and E Wingfield Bowles were noted consulting electrical engineers in the early days of electric lighting. Internet searches reveal that Wingfield Bowles was involved in early electrical installations in some theatres.
