(d. 1779)

Amateur

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

A cambric manufacturer in Lurgan, a man of remarkable mechanical and inventive powers. He constructed a figure of a man which uttered articulate sounds and called out the hours of the clock. He also painted flowers and portraits on glass. One of the latter was of George Whitfield preaching at Lurgan, with likenesses of many of the people of the town. He died young, probably in 1779, in which year his will was proved.
