Scientists: Inventors, Researchers, Engineers, Mathematicians
Scientists seem to spend so much time behind-the-scenes it's actually rare for someone to gain enough public aknoledgement to appear on a famous list. When this happens it's usually because their discoveries and inventions have made them wealthy businessmen (or women). If you check our business listings you'll see this. Meanwhile we do have some notable names including Alan Cox, Dr Evan Pierce, Herbert Stuart, John Ddu and of course mathematician Robert Recorde.
