Biography

McConnell was born at Fermoy, Co. Cork, Ireland, on 1 January 1815.

Since the Rainhill Trials in 1829, it had been accepted that the smoke emitted by burning coal was a nuisance. Railway companies accepted the need to burn coke (a smokeless fuel) in their locomotives, but this was much more expensive than coal, and several locomotive engineers sought a method by which coal could be burned smokelessly. One such engineer was McConnell, who designed a boiler suitable for coal in 1852.

McConnell died at Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire, England, on 11 June 1883.
