Son of Solomon Williams (q.v.). He was a pupil of John Smyth in the Dublin Society's School, and gained the first prize for sculpture in 1816. While still a pupil he exhibited in Hawkins Street in 1815, 1817 and 1819. He then went to London, where he followed his profession as a sculptor for some years, and exhibited in the Royal Academy between 1822 and 1832. Among his exhibited works were "Milo of Crotona, caught in the cleft of a tree" (1823); "Bust of Charles Rossi, R.A.," (1824); "Bacchus" (1828), and "Haidee recovering Juan" (1832).
