HAYDON, J.

(fl. 1739)

Engraver

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

His name appears as the engraver of two large plates, "Views of the Cathedrals of Lismore and Cloyne," from drawings by J. Blaymire (q.v.), in Vol. I of Harris's edition of "Ware's Works," published in Dublin in 1739; as well as of thirteen of the ornamental headings to chapters, with episcopal seals, etc. No other engravings by him have been met with, nor is anything known of him. He may, perhaps, have been the "Rev. Mr. John Haydon," whose name appears in the list of subscribers to the work.
