Southwell, Francis

Dates Active in Dublin: 

1804–1815 (1821)


34 Marlborough Street, 1804–15 [as William Southwell & Co.]
(135 Mecklenburgh Street, 1821 as professor of music)


Second [?] son of William Southwell.

It is not clear if this is the same person as Frederick Southwell listed as a piano maker from c. 1809 to 1830.

In 1804 William Southwell drew up a deed of partnership with his brother Nicholas and sons John (ii) and Francis, after which the business was known as 'William Southwell & Co.'. The partnership was due to last four years but was not dissolved until 1815. Following the dissolution of the partnership in 1815 Francis appears to have turned to teaching and composing.
