He was afterwards employed on the wood-carving in the Royal Hospital, Kilmainham; the rail, panels and Communion table in the chapel are his work, and the minute books of the hospital record the payment to him of two hundred and fifty pounds on 27th January, 1686. A JOHN TABARY, "sculptor," and LOUIS TABARY, "carver," both "French Protestants," were admitted to the franchise in 1685.
