Civil and mechanical engineer of Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

c.1779 Assigned the sole right of erecting engines according to Matthew Wasbrough's patent for use of a crank in using the drive from an engine, in the counties of Northumberland, Durham, and York.[1]

Could this be the same William Chapman as William Chapman (1749-1832)?
