1825 The first marine engine made at the works of John Penn and Sons was for the steamer Ipswich followed by that for the Suffolk, which vessels were built to run between London and Ipswich and up the Orwell. These engines, like earlier ones, were side-lever engines, being an ordinary beam land engine, with the beam and crank shaft inverted.[1]
