Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Carpenter and builder, of 152 Thomas Street, Dublin, listed as such in Wilson's Dublin Directory for the years 1826 to 1831.  He can perhaps be identified as William Going Sibthorpe (1803-1892, second son of Henry Sibthorpe (1765ca-1824; see HENRY SIBTHORPE & HENRY SIBTHORPE & amp; SON) and also as the William Sibthorpe of Cork Hill who was a subscriber to William Stitt's The Practical Architect's Ready Assistant; or Builder's Complete Companion (Dublin, 1819).(1)  Despite the evidence of the Dublin directories (which were not always kept up to date)  William Going Sibthorpe is described as living in Limerick in 1826;  however his daughter Hannah was born in Dublin in 1829.  He seems eventually to have settled permanently in Limerick, where he became the local agent for the Dublin Steam Packet Company.   He died in Limerick on 2 June 1892.
