Joseph Skelton (1785-ca.1850) was an antiquary and topographer. Although, as the title suggests, Hugh O'Neill was the primary illustrator for this work, some of the images were, in fact, drawn by Joseph Skelton. However, O'Neill died the same year that this work was published and the title could merely have been a dedication to him.
Hugh O'Neill (1784-1824) was an illustrator, topographer and son of an architect. He was born on April 26th 1784 at Lascelles Place, Bloomsbury, London, England. He was articled to Dr. Thomas Monro and in 1803 he won a Society of Arts Silver Palette. He became a drawing master in the cities of Edinburgh, Oxford, Bristol and Bath. He died in Bristol on April 7th 1824 just before his 40th birthday.
