James I'Anson Cudworth (12 January 1817 - 22 October 1899) was Locomotive Superintendent of the South Eastern Railway (SER). He served in this capacity from 1845-76. He is notable for designing a successful method for burning coal in steam locomotives without significant emission of smoke, and for introducing the 0-4-4T wheel arrangement to English railways. Cudworth was born in Darlington, Co. Durham on 12 January 1817, the second of three children born to William Cudworth and Mary I'Anson (born 18 November 1785, Darlington). His parents were Quakers, and had married in 1810; William Cudworth was a grocer and druggist, whilst Mary I'Anson's family name was of Scandinavian origin. James Cudworth's elder brother William was a civil engineer, and worked for the Stockton & Darlington Railway; William's son William John, also a civil engineer, worked for the North Eastern Railway.
