David Hiorne

David Hiorne was a builder active, especially in Warwick, England, in the mid-18th century until his death in 1758. He was born in Great Tew in Oxfordshire, the son of John Hiorne and younger brother to architect William Hiorne (born around 1712, died 1776). Hiorne is perhaps most noted for the number of country houses and churches on which he and his brother worked across the Midlands. He died on 8 April 1758 and was survived by three sons, John, Edward and David.
