Walter Harris (1688 - 1761):
Historian


Walter Harris was born in Queen's County (Leix) and was educated at Trinity College, Dublin. He was called to the Bar in 1713, and in the same year received an honorary doctorate. Through marriage he inherited Sir James Ware's manuscripts. The manuscripts, many of which he translated and expanded, were edited and published by him. They were eventually divided between the National Library and Armagh Library. Among his publications were Life and Reign of William III; History of Dublin, and, in 1744, The Ancient and Present State of the County of Dublin.
