Portrait by Thomas Phillips, 1821 - Sir Humphry Davy, 1st Baronet FRS MRIA FGS (1778 –1829) was a Cornish chemist & inventor. He is probably best remembered today for his discoveries of several alkali & alkaline earth metals, as well as contributions to the discoveries of the elemental nature of chlorine & iodine. In January 1819, Davy was awarded a baronetcy, this was, at the time, the highest honour ever conferred on a man of science in Britain.

Sir Humphry Davy, 1st Baronet PRS MRIA FGS (17 December 1778 – 29 May 1829) was a Cornish chemist and inventor,[1] who is best remembered today for his discoveries of several alkali and alkaline earth metals, as well as contributions to the discoveries of the elemental nature of chlorine and iodine. Berzelius called Davy's 1806 Bakerian Lecture On Some Chemical Agencies of Electricity "one of the best memoirs which has ever enriched the theory of chemistry.

The first electric light in the history was made in the year 1800 by Humphry Davy, an English scientist. He also invented an electric battery while experimenting with electricity. When he connected carbon with the wires of his battery, the carbon glowed hence producing light.

Humphry Davy (1778–1829), son of an impoverished Cornish woodcarver, rose meteorically to become a leader in the reformed chemistry movement initiated by Antoine-Laurent Lavoisier—albeit a critic of some of its basic premises—and a pioneer in the new field of electrochemistry.
