You probably already have Joshua Field’s list of steamers and their engine makers from 1811 to 1822, but just in case …. It’s Appendix No 1 to Fifth Report of the Select Committee on the Roads from London to Holyhead; and into the regulations for conveying his Majesty’s mails between London and Dublin, &c, &c. Steam Boats; &c Ordered, by The House of Commons, to be Printed, 12 June 1822. 417. Some internet copies do not include the appendices but this one does:

It’s actually a GB list, not a UK list, omitting [at least some] Irish steamers.
