Nephew of the foregoing, and son of Thomas Pope (q.v.). He entered the Dublin Society's Schools in 1764, and in 1768 obtained a prize for architectural drawing. He was afterwards a pupil of Richard Cranfield (q.v.), and exhibited in 1770 "An Elevation for a Temple" at the Society of Artists in William Street, his only appearance as an exhibitor. He worked for many years as a carver and gilder at No. 44 Stephen Street. In 1800 the Dublin Society commissioned him to execute a model of the Giant's Causeway, for which he was to be paid thirty pounds. He died in or about 1808.
