Seal Engraver

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

He received his art training in the Dublin Society's Schools, and was afterwards apprenticed to Henry Standish (q.v.). In 1748 he set up for himself as a seal cutter in Crane Lane, and announced his commencing business in "Faulkner's Journal" (25th June, 1748), saying that he would "cut seals on stone or metal at most reasonable prices." He cut a large silver seal for the Governors of the Rotunda Hospital, for which he was paid £5 13s. 9d. on 19th August, 1758.
