Engraver

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

He was admitted as a quarter-brother of the Goldsmiths' Corporation in 1744. He worked as an engraver, probably as a silver-engraver, in Fishamble Street, and exhibited "Arms and Inscription" with the Society of Artists in William Street in 1767. He died in Fishamble Street in February, 1772. A ROBERT MURRAY was a pupil in Robert West's School in George's Lane, where he was a prize-winner in 1748. The "Dublin Courant" (5th-8th Nov., 1748) says he was "brother of Miss MARTHA MURRAY, who, at the age of 11, was remarkable for her excellence in engraving."
