Patent of 1794 : "October 18, 1794.— WILLIAM SOUTHWELL. Improved dampers, and addition of treble keys." The History of the Pianoforte: With an Account of the Theory of Sound & Also of the Music and Musical Instruments of the Ancients, Edgar Brinsmead, 1879, p. 197 (archive.org) - see also PATENT DRAWING -  and -  another - or - "A.D. 1794, October 18.-N° 2017. - SOUTHWELL, WILLIAM.-" Improvements in the construction of the musical instruments called a pianoforte, by which im"provements the tones of such instruments are rendered r nore distinct and perfect, and the players playing on such instruments have a power to produce the gradation of tones from piano to forte with greater effect than they were able at the then present to produce the same, and an additional number of keys might be put to such instruments in a new manner, unt better construction than such keys could be put to pianofortes at the then present.
1. A new mode of using the dampers. A small wire ex long is screwed into a wooden button in. high, the latter glued to a thin piece of leather glued to the key near its hammer end. The damper, which is lined with cloth, is fixed to the upper part of the wire, which, passing between the strings to each separate note, acts in a slip of wood or socket fastened to the edges of the back block, and having a hole covered with leather for the action of the wire; the damper is thus raised by the act of playing, and the vibration is stopped by the damper falling down on the strings by the weight of the key.
2. A new manner of putting additional keys to the treble of instruments. The additional keys at the part where they are touched by the performer stand in the same line with the sounding board, but act in another compartment of the instrument under the sounding board, and occasion a new order of strings, hammers, keys, and pinblock; the latter is for the additional strings cut out of the back of the instrument in order not to encroach on the sounding board. [Printed, 6d. Drawings.]" Specifications Relating to Paints ..., 1871, p. 28-29

Patent of 1798 : "William Southwell, of Broadcourt, in the parish of St. Martin's in the Fields in the county of Middlesex, musical instrument-maker; for new improvements on the action and construction of piano-fortes, and other musical instruments. Dated November 8." The Annual Register of World Events: A Review of the Year, Volume 40, 1800, p. 389 - or - "New method of applying additional notes. The frame turns down over the keys, and the "leader" is fastened to the hammer by a joint of leather. A harp played with keys is also mentioned in the specification." The History of the Pianoforte, Edgard Brinsmead, 1879, p. 197 (archive.org) - see PATENT DRAWING

Patent of 1807 : "William Southwell, of the city of Dublin, musical instrument-maker; for certain improvements upon a piano-forte, which is so constructed as to prevent the possibility of its being so frequently out of tune, as piano-fortes now generally are, which he denominates a 'cabinet pianoforte.' Dated April 8, 1807." The Annual Register, Or, A View of the History, Politics, and Literature for ..., 1807, p. 856

 

Irish 'Pianoforte-maker' ca. 1794-1839

"The piano was introduced upon the stage in London as a newly invented instrument in 1767 by Dibdin, and in Dublin by Michael Arne in 1770. It had been customary thus to introduce keyed instruments into the theatrical orchestra. A picture of the performance at Versailles in honour of the marriage of Louis XVI. and Marie Antoinette shows this—the harpsichord having the lid raised. Mozart did likewise at Milan in 1771, and even so lately as 1826 Weber "presided at the pianoforte," when Oberon was produced at Covent Garden, although, as that opera had no recitatives (being only "a drama with songs"), it is not very clear for what the instrument had been introduced. Some allusion having been made to the progress of the piano in Dublin with Panormo and Michael Arne, the (Sir R. Stewart) would refer to one well-known Irish artist, Wm. Southwell, who had rendered great services to the manufacture of the instrument, having improved the dampers, extended the compass, and invented the upright, then termed a cabinet piano." The Monthly musical record, Volume 5, 1875, p. 74


(continuation)

Patent of 1811 : "William Southwell, Gresse-street, Rathbone place, Middlesex, piano-forte maker; for certain improvements in the construction of a piano-forte." The Literary Panorama, Volume 10, 1811, p. 1266 - or -  "Piano sloping backwards, with improved action and damper wire." The History of the Pianoforte, Edgard Brinsmead, 1879, p. 200 (archive.org) - see also PATENT DRAWING

Patent of 1821 : "William Southwell, of Gresse-street, Rathbone-place, for certain improvements on cabinet piano-fortes. — April 5th." The London Magazine, Volume 3, 1821, p. 697 -or - "Check action applied to cabinet pianos, to prevent the hammer rebounding against the strings." The History of the Pianoforte, Edgar Brinsmead, 1879, p. 202 (archive.org)

Patent of 1837 : "To William Southwell, of Winchester-road, Newroad, in the county of Middlesex, pianoforte-maker, for his invention of a certain improvement in pianofortes.— [Sealed 24th August, 1837]
This improvement is in the construction of a part of the mechanism called the action of a pianoforte, by which the pressure exerted by the finger of the player upon the key, is communicated to the hammer that strikes the string and also to the damper which stops the vibrations. The improvement is the introduction of a small tong and spring in what is called the butt; it is designed to render the touch more delicate than in the ordinary construction, and, consequently, to facilitate the playing of rapid passages by ensuring the correct action of the hammer and damper.— [Inrolled in the Inrolment Office, February, 1838.]" The London Journal of Arts and Sciences, and Repertory of Patent ..., Volume 14, William Newton, 1839, p. 6 - see also

Patent of 1829 : "PIANO FORTES.-To James Stewart, of George-street, Euston square, London, Piano Forte Maker, a patent for «certain improvements on Piano Fortes», was granted on the 2d of November, 1829, and the specification was deposited in the Enrolment Office on the 2d of January, 1830. This invention is applicable to the upright or cabinet piano fortes, and it has for its object a simplification of the parts by which the action of the fingers on the keys is transmitted to the wires of the instrument. There are several motions connected with the operations of a piano, which require great precision as to their time, duration, and intensity of action. The hammer must be made to strike the string at the same instant that the damper is withdrawn, and the hammer having done its duty, must be instantly removed (even before the finger of the performer has left the key), from the string to allow the vibration to take place, and then the damper must return to stop the vibration of the string the moment that the finger is removed from the key. Now as all the motions must be obtained by a very slight touch of the finger, and without any noise, the levers and connecting rods by which they are trasmitted from the keys to the strings become important considerations with the piano forte makers, and Mr. Stewart has simplified the action, and rendered it more certain by the introduction of a short lever placed over, and parallel with the interior end of the finger lever. This lever being short, and joined near its moveable end by a small connecting brass rod to the finger lever, furnished in itself the required variety of motions by placing the rods which act upon the hammer, damper, &c. at different distances from the fulcrum, on which it turns. In addition to this, Mr. Stewart has introduced an improved incline plane for receiving the tail of the hammer, and stopping it silently after it has struck the string."

LONDON - "A grand, 6¾ octaves, C to A, by Messrs. Stodart, is a very interesting specimen, in as much as it is fitted with metallic bracing, on the plan patented by Mr. Stodart in 1820. This is the original of all the varieties of metallic bearing now in use, and its leading features—viz., a metallic stringplate kept apart from the wrest-plank by a system of longitudinal metallic bars— are essentially the same as have ever since been followed. The only variations from the more modern systems in matters of detail are, that the longitudinal stretchers are hollow tubes instead of flat bars, and that the string-plate is detached from the wood framing below. With regard to the form of the stretcher, there is no doubt the hollow tube is the more correct form, on mechanical principles, as being better calculated to offer the greatest resistance to a compressive force with the least quantity of material. Every one acquainted with constructive science knows that a hollow tube is the most advantageous form for a column, and the function of the metallic stretchers in a piano-forte is precisely analogous. The object of leaving the string-plate detached from the woodwork below, was to allow the whole metallic frame, with the strings it carried, to contract and expand together, under atmospheric changes, without straining the woodwork, since wood and metal are, it is well known, differently influenced in this respect. The experience of other makers has not shewn this to be of 'much importance in practice; and therefore the separation of the wood and metal framing is but seldom adhered to; but the idea is ingenious, and the principle correct. Altogether Mr. Stodart’s system of metallic framing, adopted at such an early date, is a good example of the application of scientific knowledge to the construction of the piano-forte; and the very general way in which it has been since followed, corroborates the universal rule that improvements, based on correct principle, are those which will ultimately be found of the greatest practical value. A peculiarity in the framing of this piano-forte, although not a part of the original system, is that the wrest-plank is turned upside down, being placed above the strings instead of below them; by this arrangement, the strings are struck against their rests, without the necessity for an upward bearing stud ; while the metallic stretcher-bars bear directly against the plank instead of being cranked down to it, as in the common plan. The wrest-pins pass completely through the plank, and their Squared ends appear above it, so to offer facility for tuning. The inverted wrest-plank is a remnant of a system introduced by Mr. Wornum, in which the entire wood framing was placed above the strings; but which, from its inconvenience, has not continued in use.

INVENTIONS


(continuation)

The same firm also exhibit a Square, 6¾ octaves, C to A, with a down-striking action. This example shews satisfactorily how much the framing of the Square piano-forte might be simplified and improved by the substitution of the inverted mechanism. The action has an improvement by Mr. Greiner, by which the necessity for springs is done away We believe that Mr. Stodart introduced the down-striking Square four or five years ago, and is the only English maker who has manufactured instruments on this principle. This piano is six or eight inches shorter than ordinary Squares; wherefore the maker has called it the “compact Square.” Moreover the key-board is in the middle of the length ; and the appearance is therefore symmetrical. This has also been done by Messrs. Collards." Newton's London Journal of Arts and Sciences, 1851, p. 36-37

LONDON - "The next come to Messrs. Stodart, who exhibit a grand in rosewood and a compact square: the peculiarity in the latter instrument is, that the string and sounding-hoard are sunk in the case, and that the hammers are made to strike down upon the strings instead of up to them,as usual: it has a very good tone, and is a convenient instrument, having almost the appearance of a sofa table when shut."
