Michael Joseph 
Quin
, 3rd son. Attorney-at-law (Inner Temple), (or maybe barrister at law, Lincoln's Inn (1819), or Gray's Inn (1824,1827) ca.1840 with his stepfather "Edward Wallis (1771-1844)"> purchased "The Tablet". The Catholic Encyclopaedia Volume XII has an article about him "Michael Joseph Quin Writing from 10 Gray's Inn Place, 14 Feb. 1832. See: Catholic Encyclopedia (1913), Volume 12 Michael Joseph Quin by Edwin Hubert Burton See Wikepedia: Originator of the "Dublin Review", born at Thurles, Co. Tipperary, Ireland, 1796; died at Boulogne-sur-Mer, 19 Feb., 1843. Coming to London he was called to the Bar at Lincoln's Inn and while waiting for practice devoted himself to journalism. For the "Morning Herald" he wrote an account of his experiences in Spain during the latter part of 1822 and the first four months of 1823. This he published in book-form as "A Visit to Spain" (1823). In the following year he issued two translations, "Memoirs of Ferdinand VII" and "A Statement of some of the principal events in the public life of Don Agustâin de Iturbide". He became editor of the "Monthly Review" in 1825 and held that post for seven years. During this period he contributed many articles on foreign policy to the "Morning Chronicle", and edited "The Catholic Journal", a weekly newspaper which ran for one year only. Further travels in Hungary, Wallachia, Servia, and Turkey furnished him with material for a new book in 1835, called "A Steam Voyage down the Danube", which was so successful that it was translated into French and German. But his most lasting work was the "Dublin Review", which has ever since remained the leading Catholic periodical in the British Isles. Of its first beginnings Cardinal Wiseman wrote: "It was in 1836 that the idea of commencing a Catholic Quarterly was first conceived by the late learned and excellent Mr. Quin, who applied to the illustrious O'Connell and myself to join in the undertaking". Quin became the editor and chief contributor, writing five articles in the first number and four in the second. But the enterprise was not remunerative. After two numbers he resigned the editorship, being unable to devote so much time and trouble without financial advantage, but continued to contribute articles to succeeding issues. During 1842 he edited "The Tablet", pending the disputes between Lucas and the publishers. His remaining works are: "The Trade of Banking in England" (1833); a pamphlet on the proposed abolition of local probate courts (1834); "Nourmahal, an Oriental Romance" (1838); "Petra", translated from the French (1839), and "Steam Voyages on the Seine, the Moselle and the Rhine" (1843). He married a daughter of Edward Wallis of Burton Grange, York, and had three daughters by her. GILLOW, Bibl. Dict. Eng. Cath., s. v.; COOPER in Dict. Nat.
