Alexander Adie was born in 1775. At 14 he was apprenticed to John Miller, his uncle, one of the most highly respected eighteenth century Scottish instrument makers. Miller and Adie formed a partnership that ran from 1804 to 1822.
Alexander Adie was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 1819 and was appointed optician to Willaim IV and Queen Victoria. He went into partnership with his son, John, in 1835. Many consider him to be the finest of all the great barometer makers, his unique design epitomising the understated elegance of the Regency period.
