George Ensor (1724-1803)

An architect and builder who worked in the offices of the Surveyor General in the early 1740s. He was later dismissed from his post in 1751 probably for taking bribes. In the 1760s he worked as an architect and developer in Dublin and was appointed surveyor of the works at Christ Church cathedral Dublin in 1761. By the 1790s he was obviously still carrying out building contracts for the Government, as in 1796 he was again dismissed for taking bribes.
