Sir, an English engraver, was born at Pomona, in the Orkneys, July 14, 1721, of an ancient family, and, after many travels and adventures in Europe, established himself as a historian and artist in London, where he died, July 5, 1792. Besides many secular and classical subjects, he engraved several of the saints, remarkable for their sweetness, but lacking vigor. He left a list of them (Catalogue, etc. [Lond. 1769]).
