William Mylne

1734 - 1790

Architect. Born in Edinburgh into a family of noted architects, he was the great-grandson of Robert Mylne (1633 - 1710). Collaborated with his more notable brother Robert Mylne (1733 - 1811) on several projects. He built the first North Bridge in Edinburgh, but it collapsed as it was nearing completion (1769), resulting in a lengthy dispute with the Town Council and delaying its completion until 1772. Mylne left for the USA the following year, but returned to settle in Ireland. He died in Dublin and is buried there.
