Ebenezer Hastings is described as a drawing clerk in Francis Johnston's office in the minutes of the Board of Works for 4 March 1828.(1) He may be the person of the same name who died at Fort George, Scotland, on 25 January 1860, aged fifty-three, and was buried in the Hastings family plot in the new burying ground in Clifton Street, Belfast. The plaque recording this information was erected by WILLIAM HASTINGS  WILLIAM HASTINGS in 1860, indicating that Joseph Hastings was a relative, perhaps a brother.(2)
