Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Engineer and architect. Christopher Myers, was born in  Lancashire in 1717.   He  was employed as an assistant on the development of Ramsgate Harbour in the opening years of the 1750s but by 1754 had  come to Ireland and  was working on the harbour at Ballycastle, Co. Antrim, which had been undergoing a long-running programme of public works to facilitate the transport by sea of coal from the local colliery.(1) A scurrilous attack on various engineers in Ireland in the Freeman's Journal for 31 May- 2nd June 1770 by a writer using the nom-de-plume 'La Verité' describes Myers as 'A Cabinet-maker in L[iver]p[oo]l, who, taking a precipitate Leave of his Creditors, was for his Dexterity rewarded with Apartments, two Years in his Majesty's Fleet, London' and subsequently came to Ireland where he was given employment by 'Mr [Thomas] O[me]r', who 'out of Compassion appointed him to oversee the Workmen then building a Lock on the River Shannon' and recommended him to the 'Earl of D-'. This account was challenged a few days later in an unsigned letter, written, probably by Myers himself, from 'the Corner House of Grafton-street, near College green', which asserted 'that every Line in that part of his Letter, regarding C- M-rs, is a malicious and most notorious Falshood…If the Author had traced C- M-rs's Place of Nativity he would find he was neither born nor bred in Obscurity, but regularly brought up to the Profession he now pursues, nor did he ever live in Liverpoole a single Day, but was invited from England, long before Mr O[me]r's coming to the Kingdom, by the Earl of A[n]t[ri]m to rebuild the Castle of Glenarm, in which he acquitted himself with Reputation, and was by that Nobleman's Friends recommended to the Earl of D-'.(2) A datestone at Glenarm Castle inscribed 'Rebuilt by Alexander the Present Earl in the year 1756'(3) presumably refers to the rebuilding of the castle by Myers, who must therefore have been working simultaneously on it and on Ballycastle Harbour, where he was engaged, if only intermittently, until at least 1760.(4)  Myers had a house at Glenarm until 1763, when he sold it(5)  He subsequently moved to Lisburn.  

The canal engineer THOMAS OMER THOMAS OMER , who had come to Ireland in 1755, did indeed consider Myers 'a very knowing and experienced workman' as regarded building in water.(6) In 1762 Myers was appointed director of the works on the Newry Canal in succession to ACHESON JOHNSTON ACHESON JOHNSTON . At that time it was proposed to rebuild and enlarge the Newry and Coalisland canals, extending the latter as far as Drumglass, in order to permit vessels of 100 tons to sail directly from Newry to the heart of the Co. Tyrone collieries. Myers started work on extending the Coalisland canal to the new, enlarged dimensions, excavating part of the line and building a large ship lock. After one or two years he came to the conclusion that it he could not undertake to continue the work in the absence of what he considered to be a sufficiently large grant from Government.(7) In 1767 he reported on the proposed extension to a parliamentary committee, and recommended that the idea of carrying a ship canal to the collieries should be abandoned.(8)

By the mid-1760s Myers was evidently also regarded as an architect of some standing. He was described as 'an Eminent Architect now in this Kingdom' when his advice was sought on designs for the Tholsel in Drogheda in 1765.(9) In the same year he sold up the contents of his house in Lisburn(10) and moved to Dublin, where he leased a large development site in Grafton Street, on which he designed a new house for the Dublin Society.(11)  He succeeded HENRY KEENE  HENRY KEENE as architect to the Barrack Board in 1766.(12) In 1771 he exhibited four designs at the Society of Artists in Dublin,(13) and in 1775 he was appointed architect to Trinity College.(14) As such he was responsible for the execution of the designs provided by WILLIAM CHAMBERS  WILLIAM CHAMBERS for the college theatre and chapel, though the latter remained incomplete at the time of his death.(15)

Myers died inJuly 1789, survived by his widow, Jane, née Graham,(16) whom he had married in Whitehaven on 21 March 1744.(17) He was buried in Monkstown graveyard.(18) He had several children. His eldest son, GRAHAM MYERS GRAHAM MYERS , his fourth son, CHRISTOPHER MYERS [2] CHRISTOPHER MYERS [2] , and his fifth son, RANDAL MYERS RANDAL MYERS , all became architects or builders.(18) His only daughter, Elizabeth, married Patrick Allen of Kilroot, Co. Antrim ,in 1768.(19) He died at the end of June or beginning of July 1789.(20) He was replaced by Graham Myers as architect to Trinity College, Dublin, on 11 July 1789,(21) and his will was proved in the Prerogative Court four months later, on 17 October.(22)

There is room for some confusion between Christopher Myers [1], Christopher Myers [2] and Graham Myers, and it is not always clear which of them is being referred to. Was it Christopher Myers [1] or Graham Myers who, in collaboration with SAMUEL SPROULE SAMUEL SPROULE , submitted an entry in the Royal Exchange Competition of 1769 which was judged one of the three best Irish designs?(23) The Christopher Myers who won the second premium in the Ringsend Bridge competition in 1787 is probably more likely to have been Christopher Myers [2].(24)

Addresses:(25) Castle Street, Lisburn, 1765;  Grafton Street, Dublin,1768-74; 109 Grafton Street, 1775-81; Monkstown at time of death.(26)
