Byrom invented a system of shorthand in the early 1700s. It was patented in 1740 following his family inheritance. It was officially taught at Oxford and Cambridge, and was used by the clerk of the House of Lords. It marked a significant development in the history of shorthand and was used by Methodism founders John and Charles Wesley.
