Architect, of Sligo, active in the 1860s. Charles Lynn, a son of JOHN LYNN[1] JOHN LYNN[1] , is named as chief legatee in his father's will. His only work to be noted in the Irish Builder was a manse which was to be built in Sligo in 1867 to designs by 'Charles Lynn esq.'(2)  He may possibly be the same person as the architect named Charles Lynn, of Coleraine, Co. Derry, whose death by drowning on 22 July 1887, when the boat from which he was fishing on Lough Foyle capsized, was reported in the Irish Times the following day.(3)
