Although this portrait appears in science museums that identify the subject as "Jonathan Carter Hornblower," this is actually Jabez Carter Hornblower, elder brother of Jonathan, who did not have the middle name "Carter."  The similarity in the Hornblower family's given names through several generations has created much confusion among historians. 


Jonathan Hornblower, Jr.

He invented the compound steam engine for use in mines in Cornwall.

He also held several other patents.
