Jordan Wainwright is the earliest known flute maker to be working in Australia. Originally working in London, possibly in partnership with his brother, he is recorded in London trade directories as a flute maker from about 1820 until about 1850. He is known to have travelled to Sydney with his wife in 1853 and by 1857 had established himself in George Street, Sydney where he worked in several premises until 1883.
