NOTES

[1] Morrison: Like other Scotch families of the present day, a member of the MacMuirios or O'Muirios family settled in Scotland in early times; who was the ancestor of Morrison. Sir Richard Morrison, President of the Institute of Architects, was born in Cork, in 1767. He was at first employed in the Government service in the Ordnance Department; but afterwards devoted himself to private engagements, and erected many important public buildings in Ireland—as Sir Patrick Dun's Hospital, Dublin, and the County Court Houses at Carlow, Clonmel, Dundalk, Galway, Maryborough, Naas, Roscommon, and Wexford. He was knighted in 1841, and died on the 31st of October, 1849.
