Tiberius Cavallo was born in Naples to a physician father. While in his early twenties, he emigrated to London in order to pursue a career as a merchant, but found his interest in science taking centre stage. He was more an improver than an inventor, and wrote several essays,including:
A Complete Treatise on Electricity (1777)
Treatise on the Nature and Properties of Air and other permanently Elastic Fluids (1781)
History and Practice of Aerostation (1785)
Treatise on Magnetism (1787)
Elements of Natural and Experimental Philosophy (1803)
Theory and Practice of Medical Electricity (1780)
Medical Properties of Factitious Air (1798).
He was friends with the Corsican liberator Pasquale de Paoli, and was buried close to him. However, Paoli has since been repatriated to Corsica, and changes to the churchyard have caused Cavallo's grave to vanish.
