Biographical note
  • William Molyneux, Member of Parliament, born in Dublin on 17 April 1656. He founded the Dublin Philosophical Society in 1683, and published several papers in Philosophical Transactions, and papers on optics and natural philosophy. In 1698 he published the controversial work, 'The Case of Ireland's being Bound by Acts of Parliament in England, Stated', a publication which the English House of Commons considered to be 'of dangerous consequence to the crown and people of England by denying the authority of the king and parliament of England to bind the kingdom and people of Ireland' (James G. O'Hara, 'Molyneux, William (1656-1698)', Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, Sept 2004). Molyneux died on 11 October 1698, and is interred in St. Audoen's Church, Dublin. See Molyneux's Wikipedia entry:
