Abraham Darby II
Abraham Darby II (1711 – 1763) was the second Abraham Darby in three generations of an English Quaker family that played a role in the Industrial Revolution. He followed in his father's footsteps at the Darby foundry in Coalbrookdale, refining techniques for producing wrought iron from pig iron and producing the iron to replace the more expensive brass cylinders used in Thomas Newcomen's steam engines.
