John Windele was a native of Cork city. He became a member of the South Munster Antiquarian Society (forerunner of the Cork Archaeological Society) and in 1836 was a founder member of the Cork Cuvierian Society through which he could pursue his interest in antiquities. Sketching antiquities in the landscape and collecting archaeological artefacts such as gold ornaments and Ogham stones were among his pursuits, most of which are now in the National Museum of Ireland.

‘Historical and descriptive notices of the city of Cork and its Vicinity’ was first published in 1839 and regularly reprinted.
