Father of Martyn Molineaux?

Earliest dated violin is from 1739 but presumably active earlier.

Apprentice: Thomas Perry? [although design of instruments is quite different].

Obituary notice states: Died 'In Christ Church Yard, Mr Thomas Molineux, Fiddle Maker' (Faulkner's Dublin Journal)

[Addresses differ according to sources: Faulkner's Dublin Journal gives the address as Christ Church Yard, but Boydell (Calendar) erroneously gives it as Christ Church Place.]
