Biographical Notes Active as an engraver in Dublin, c. 1770-1787, engaged mainly in magazine and book illustration. He was deaf and dumb. Strickland states that he 'was fond of scientific studies, especially of electricity.' He died of a fit of apoplexy 'while riding from Dublin to Ballispellane, on 22nd July, 1787.' At that time he had a business at 17 Exchange Street.
