Letitia Byrne, daughter of William Byrne and Mrs Byrne Printer friendly version

Letitia Byrne was born on 24 November 1779 the third daughter of William Byrne (1743 -1805) who was a reknown landscape engraver and publisher, a fellow of the Incorporated Society of Artists and exhibitor of engravings between 1766 and 1780. His children James (1771-1834), Anne Frances (1775-1837), Mary (1776-1845), Letitia, Elizabeth (c 1780 - 1849) and John (1786-1847) all became artists in their own right.

At the age of twenty Letitia was exhibiting at the Royal Academy and she came to prominence when she engraved over 40 works for Paul Amsinck's A Description of Tunbridge Wells and Its Neighbourhood published in 1810. She also engraved and exhibited views of Winchester, Oxford, Derbyshire, Wales, and France.

Letitia Byrne died on 21 May 1849, and was buried at Kensal Green cemetery.
