Look up Charles Dellschau and the Sonora Aero Club. Anti Gravity flying machines were being built and flown in the 1850's. Walter Bosley has done some interesting research into this subject and the secretive Prussian Nationalist Group NYMZA that kept tabs on this club of flying craft makers.

Generally when you design something that doesn't work you don't get credit for designing it.

There's no prize for trying.

Actually, I think da Vinci designed pretty much the same thing which also didn't work. So he wasn't even first. But who's countin'
