Architect, of Dublin. Nathaniel Montgomery appears to have been a son or close connection of Richard Montgomery, solicitor, of 9 North Great George's Street. In about 1844 he joined FREDERICK DARLEY  FREDERICK DARLEY in a partnership - known as DARLEY & DARLEY & amp; MONTGOMERY -  MONTGOMERY - which lasted until 1849. Montgomery then practised on his own.  He prepared survey drawings of Emo Court, Co. Laois, for the Encumbered Estates Commissioners in 1852.(1)   He disappears from Thom's directories after 1865, and his address was unknown when he was struck off the list of members of the RIAI in 1866.(2)
