JOHNSON, THOMAS #
- Born: - Died: 1800
Architect and builder, of Warwick, England, for whom see Howard Colvin, A Biographical dictionary of British architects 1600-1840 (4th edn., 2008). In 1778 Thomas Johnson supplied George Shirley of Ettington, Warwickshire, who also had an Irish estate in Co. Monaghan, with a design for a market house at Carrickmacross, drawn by his young son James Lees Johnson (b. 1762). Shirley had earlier been supplied with a design for the market house by JOHN GREEN of Carrickmacross, and it is not clear how far - if at all - either design was used for the building as subsequently erected, which was demolished in the early twentieth century.
