John Broadwood

Profile:
John Broadwood (6 Oct 1732—17 July 1812) was a Scottish entrepreneur, maker of harpsichords and pianos, head of renowned John Broadwood & Sons piano manufacturer (from 1783 till his death). He grew up in a small village, Oldhamstocks in East Lothian, trained by his father to become a carpenter. Instead, Broadwood traveled to London (covering over 640 kilometers by foot) to become an apprentice of Swiss harpsichord-maker Burkat Shudi (1702—1773), head of the renowned England manufactury since 1728. After Shudi's death, John Broadwood with his brother-in-law took over the company.
