Engineer, of Dublin, active from the 1880s until 1922 or later. Thomas Forsyth spent one year as a pupil of MARMADUKE BACKHOUSE before joining the staff of the Board of Public Works as a draughtsman and occasional surveyor. After spending four years working with the Board, he was then for a few months an assistant to JOHN GEORGE GAMBLE , working on the Barrow and other drainage works. It was perhaps as a result of Gamble's untimely death in November 1889 that he entered the works department of the St James's Gate Brewery, under WESLEY WILLIAM WILSON , at about the same time. He remained at the brewery for at least ten years and probably for the rest of his career.
