Thomas Brunton was the inventor of studded-link, marine chain cable, which was used to replace hempen cables and is still in use today. (Unlike ordinary chain, the studs prevent the cable from becoming kinked in use). He patented this invention as number 3671 on 26 March in 1813 and, in association with his brother, William, set up a factory in Stepney, where he produced this patent chain cable. Brunton received considerable support from ship owners in England and from the French government, for its navy.
