If it was mainly invented by Wheatstone, it was chiefly introduced by Cooke.

Mr. Wheatstone has already made experiments which fully illustrate this point.
The year of the telegraph—1837—was an important one for Morse, as it was for Cooke and Wheatstone.
The scientific men know little or nothing absolute on the subject: Wheatstone is the only man near the mark.'
Wheatstone by his knowledge of Ohm's law and the electro-magnet was probably able to enlighten him.
Wheatstone subsequently investigated the conditions necessary to obtain electro-magnetic effects at a long distance.
Wheatstone and he obtained a considerable sum for the use of their apparatus.
