William Grattan Tyrone Power (1797-1841) known professionally as Tyrone Power was an Irish stage actor, comedian, author, and theatrical manager. Born in Kilmacthomas, County Waterford, Ireland to a landed family he took to the stage achieving prominence throughout the world as an actor and manager. He is said to have purchased the land that would later be occupied by Madison Square Garden, New York shortly before his death at sea when his ship sank shortly after departing for England. The lawyer who held the papers was then unable to be found so the Power family were unable to claim right to the property. His works include: The Lost Heir and the Prediction (1830), The King's Secret (1831), The Gipsy of the Abruzzo, (1831), Impressions of America (1838) and Born to Good Luck (1852).
