The earliest documented reference to the production of gas from coal is in 1688, when John Clayton (then Rector of Crofton, near Wakefield0 made mention of his experiments in coal distillation in a letter to the Royal Society. (1) There is though no indication that Clayton foresaw any application for the gas produced. Nor evidently did others, for a hundred years were to pass before this work was continued and extended to the use of gas for lighting.
