In 1722 he was appointed to the deanery of Dromore, a post which seems to have entailed no duties, as we find him holding the offices of Hebrew lecturer and senior proctor at the university.
In this style are the town hall (1652), and a house dated 1580, in which was born in 1729 Thomas Percy, bishop of Dromore, the editor of the Reliques of Ancient English Poetry.
THOMAS PERCY (1729-1811), bishop of Dromore, editor of the Percy Reliques, was born at Bridgnorth on the 13th of April 1729.
Through his patron's influence he became dean of Carlisle in 1778 and bishop of Dromore in Ireland in 1782.
Both were buried in the transept which Percy added to Dromore Cathedral.
