Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Overseer of public works for Cork Corporation from 1733(1) or earlier. Jehosophat Huleatt may have been a son of an Englishman of the same name, who was born in Devon in 1660 and married in Ireland circa 1687.(2)  A copy of his survey of the city walls, made in 1733, is in the Cork City and County Archives.  In addition to his work as overseer, Huleatt also supplied the
Corporation with coal and other sundries,(3) and appears to have served as an alderman for many years.    He had died by 2 February 1757, when Hugh Taylor was appointed his successor.(4)
