Carpenter, of Coventry and Dublin.   Job Ensor was born in Wilnecote, Staffordshire, in 1688.    He appears to have married at least twice.   By his wife Mary he was the father of JOHN ENSOR JOHN ENSOR , born in Coventry in 1715, and by his wife Dorothy of GEORGE ENSOR GEORGE ENSOR , christened in Coventry at the end of December 1724.(1)   The family would therefore appear to have moved to Ireland between George's christening in 1724 and 1729, when Job was working on the Parliament House in Dublin.(2)
