Died: 1765

William Dilworth was a master builder elected to The Carpenters' Company prior to 1763, but no Company records prior to the l760s survive to confirm the date of his membership. From 1763 through 1765 he was a member of the important Company committee to set the prices for measuring carpentry. In 1754 William Logan paid Dilworth "for Makg. my Back Porch" at Stenton. He was the master builder of St. Paul's Church (1761) and between 1762 and 1765 served as director of the Philadelphia Contributionship.
