Captain Sir Eyre Massey Shaw KCB (17 January 1828–25 August 1908) was the Superintendent of the Metropolitan Fire Brigade (now renamed the London Fire Brigade), and its predecessor, the London Fire Engine Establishment, from 1861 to 1891. He introduced modern firefighting methods to the Brigade, and increased the number of stations.
His former home, Winchester House in Southwark, is part of the London Fire Brigade Museum, an English Heritage Blue plaque adorns the building and states that Shaw lived there.
A fireboat was named after him - information here  - which went to Dunkirk 1940.
