Answer . The first flushing thunder box was actually christened with Aussie slang in mind with yes crapper as the man. No the ancient Sumetia, Egypt and Indian's had invented it but in 1778 John Bramah made a better one. then in 1849 Stephen Green desighned the U-bend or water trap to stp the sm…ell.then in 1888 Doulton invented the water closet where a box was on top on the celeing and to flush you would pull a sting and the waste would go into a sewer. in 1915 it was modified were all you did was push a handle, the way you do now in days, and the waste was gone.In the last century Thomas Crapper had a company that made toilets,washbasins and baths.

\nHe was a plumber who founded Thomas Crapper & Co. Ltd. in London. Despite urban legend, Crapper did not invent the flush toilet (the myth being helped by the surname). However, Crapper put in effort to popularise it and did come up with some related inventions. He was noted for the quality of h…is products and received several Royal Warrants. The noun "crap" was in use long before he was born, but no longer used in Victorian Britain. The manhole covers with Crapper's company's name on them in Westminster Abbey are now a minor tourist attraction. Thomas Crapper and his company The story of Thomas Crapper and his achievements has been somewhat confused by Wallace Reyburn's 1969 book Flushed With Pride: The Story of Thomas Crapper ( ISBN 1-85702-860-0 ), a heavily fictionalised satirical biography in the style of scholarship . Adam Hart-Davis' later writings on Crapper help set the record straight. Crapper was born in Waterside, Yorkshire (near Thorne), in September 1836 (the exact date is unknown). His father Charles was a steamboat captain. At the age of 14, Crapper was apprenticed to a master plumber in Chelsea, London. After his apprenticeship and three years as a journeyman plumber, in 1861 he founded his own company at Robert Street, Chelsea. In 1866 he moved the business to nearby Marlborough Road (now part of Draycott Avenue). Thomas Crapper did not invent the flush toilet - credit is usually given to Sir John Harington in 1596, with Alexander Cummings' 1775 toilet regarded as the first of the modern line - but he did popularise it. He was a shrewd businessman, salesman and self-publicist. In a time when bathroom fixtures were barely spoken of, he heavily promoted sanitary plumbing and pioneered the concept of the bathroom fittings showroom. In the 1880s, Prince Edward (later Edward VII) purchased his country seat of Sandringham House in Norfolk and invited Thomas Crapper & Co. to supply the plumbing, including thirty lavatories with cedarwood seats and enclosures, thus giving Crapper his first Royal Warrant. The firm received further warrants from Edward as King and from George V both as Prince of Wales and as King. Contrary to popular belief, however, Crapper never received a knighthood and was never styled Sir Thomas Crapper. In 1904 Crapper retired, passing the firm to his nephew George and his business partner Robert Marr Wharam. Crapper lived at 12 Thornsett Road, Anerley for the last thirteen years of his life and died on January 27, 1910. He was buried in the nearby Elmers End Cemetery. In 1966, the company was sold by then-owner Robert G. Wharam (son of Robert Marr Wharam) on his retirement, to their rivals John Bolding & Sons. Bolding then went into liquidation in 1969. The company fell out of use until 1998, when the firm was acquired by Simon Kirby, a historian and collector of antique bathroom fittings, who relaunched the company in Stratford-upon-Avon, producing authentic reproductions of Crapper's original Victorian bathroom fittings.

Thomas was a different child and he wasnt afraid to show it, a clear example of this was his "different" relationship with Thandi. Some would say they were closer then 2 siblings should be.

No, he really did invent the flush toilet. It's not that surprising; people starting calling the toilet "the crapper" because he invented it. The word did not exist before his invention. It wasn't like the word already existed, and by some hilarious coincidence a guy named Crapper just happened to i…nvent something that you, um...crap in. Besides, if the terms "crap" and "the crapper" had already existed, don't you think the Crapper family would have long since changed their name to something else? Crapport, maybe? ( Full Answer )

While there is a popular and false urban legend that Thomas Crapper invented the flush toilet, it happens to be a fact that Thomas Crapper was a real person, ( baptised 28 September 1836; died 27 January 1910) a plumber, and the holder of several plumbing related patents. In 1853 he was apprenticed… to his brother George, a plumber. Apprenticeship is like a hands-on education in a trade; better than formal school in many ways, and essential in Crapper's time when formal education was not freely available to everyone.

Thomas Jefferson became president in 1801. His wife, Martha Jefferson died in 1782. She is considered first lady even though she never served.
As Marriage assumes the equality of the spouses, technically a marriage between a Free Man and a Slave woman- well it would not go. This is true in all major religious bodies, certainly in Christian circles. Jefferson had several Black Mistresses- who were emancipated, not slave women, AFTER his wif…e died- and she passed on long before he became President. Miss Hanson ( sounds Scandinavian< was the best known). A man in Jefferson"s position could emanicpate people by Fiat ( official order) akin to the presidential power of Pardon. President Ford in one of his first official acts, Pardoned Richard Nixon even though he had never been formally accused of a crime. Close the Emergency doors last man out of the- err, Canal.

Thomas Crapper was a plumber who founded a plumbing/manufacturing company, invented the ball-cock valve, and incorporated several other inventions into the manufacture of his toilets.
