The first "modern" seismograph was invented by John Milne in 1880. However, Zhang Heng, a Chinese astronomer is also believed to have invented the seismograph; probably the primitive ones.
Asked in Earthquakes
What instrument measures earth vibrations?
Earthquakes generate seismic waves which can be detected with a sensitive instrument called a seismograph. Advances in seismograph technology have increased our understanding of both earthquakes and the Earth itself. Perhaps the earliest seismograph was invented in China A.D. 136 by a man named Choko. A seismograph or seismometer Richter scale Seismometer or Seismograph. A seismometer or a seismograph is an instrument that measure the earths vibrations, or earths seismic waves. Seismic waves are vibrations that travel through the earth as a result of an event such as an earthquake. A seismograph Seiseimograph A seismometer or seismograph.

What is a seismograph who invented it and what are the functions?
A seismograph is an instrument used for recording the intensity and duration of an earthquake/tremor. This device is not only used for earthquakes but also for other seismic events. For example monitoring the vibrations produced during construction work and during blasting in the mining and quarrying industries. The seismograph was invented by John Milne who was an English seismologist and geologist.
