Was born about 1778, and became a pupil in the Dublin Society's School in 1790. He worked in Dublin for many years as an engraver at 15 Anglesea Street. In his later years he was associated with his son William, and as "Holbrooke and Son" published several lithographed views of Dublin, including "Barrack and Queen's Bridges copied, with alterations in the figures, from Petrie's view in 'Cromwell's Excursions'"; "The North Side of the Lying-in Hospital," from a drawing by M. Connor; and two views of "The King's Inns and Royal Canal Harbour" and "West View of Christ Church Cathedral," also after M. Connor.
