Kirk was an Irish sculptor. The letters were written in March to H. Howard Esq. R.A. concerning commissions and exhibitions. Kirk was the son of William Kirk, a native of Edinburgh, who settled in Newry, and later in Cork, where Thomas was born. He studied at Dublin Society's Schools where he won prizes in 1979 and 1800, and later worked for Henry Darley, the stonecutter. One of his earliest commissions was the statue of Nelson for the Pillar in Sackville Street, Dublin.
