QUIGLEY, DANIEL *
- Born: - Died: -
Carpenter, of 18 Townsend Street, Dublin, active from the 1780s or earlier. In 1789 he carried out work at Woodville, Co. Dublin, for the Rt. Hon. Henry Theophilus Clements(1) and in 1793 entered the competition for designing the Pigeon House hotel.(2) By 1802 he is designated 'carpenter and timber merchant' in the directories. He probably died in about 1809, for in 1810, Jane Quigley, his widow, was conducting the business from the same address. In the editions for 1814 to 1818 she appears with a son as 'Quigley, Mary Jane & Son'. According to the account given by his fellow tradesmen in 1834, Daniel Quigley had had very extensive business, employed twenty men and worked for the Revenue Commissioners. He had died well off and had been succeeded by his widow '& afterwards by his Nephew who totally failed & is now very poor'.(3)
Daniel Quigley may be the person of the same name who was born in Dublin circa 1754 and married Jane Johnston at St Andrew's church on 29 December 1780.(4)
