DWYER, John H., actor, born in Ireland; died in Albany, New York, 15 December, 1843. He was the son of an Irish gentleman who intended him for the law, but, disliking that profession, he made his first appearance, contrary to the wishes of his friends, at the Theatre royal, Dublin, and met with a success that confirmed him in his love for the stage. After playing in various provincial theatres he appeared at Drury Lane theatre, London, 1 May 1802, as Belcour in "The West Indian," with great approbation, and was immediately engaged as the light comedian of the theatre, he held this situation for three years, then gave it up, and in 1810 came to this country, where he made his first appearance at the Park theatre, New York, as Beleour, meeting with great success. He made his last appearance on the stage at the National opera house, on the corner of Leonard and Church Streets, 30 May 1839, in the character of Sir John Falstaff.
