Joseph AspdinDied 20 Mar 1855 (born c. Dec 1778). English pioneer in the development of the cement industry. The eldest son of a bricklayer, he became interested in making advanced cements for rendering brickwork. On 21 Oct 1824, he patented Portland Cement, a calcined mixture of limestone, clay and water, so named because he thought its colour resembled Portland Stone. He established his first cement works at Kirkgate in Wakefield (1825-38) and established a new works there in 1843. He retired the following year, and the business was taken over by his elder son, James. His younger son William had already set up his own business in Rotherhithe, London (1841) where he manufactured an improved cement. Sir Marc Brunel used William Aspin's cement in his Thames railway tunnel for its greater strength.
