“Bradshaw 6533 Gilbert 882.Warburton was the Keeper of the Records at Birmingham Tower and in collaboration with Mr. Whitelaw, set about the compiling of this account of Dublin. The former having access to many of the ancient documents in the Castle. With the death of Warburton the onerous task passed to Mr. Whitelaw, but he in turn died before its completion and the history was eventually finished by Robert Walsh, LL.D. It is an excellent work with much valuable information from documents which have long since vanished and is complemented with the fine reproductions of Malton’s views and detailed maps and plans.” 1818 WARBURTON, J.
