Unclear as to how he became involved in the Irish Mission, but he was living in Ireland in 1629 and described as sacristan and living at Dublin and/or Drogheda, where he died November 1625.

◆ George Oliver Towards Illustrating the Biography of the Scotch, English and Irish Members SJ
MARTIN, WILLIAM. All that I can learn of him is from a letter of F. James Gordon (Huntly), dated Bourdeaux, 11th March, 1611. “I have heard, that the Earl of Tyrone of Ireland, who lives at Rome, complains much of our brother William Martin; therefore I have taken care that William should write to him, and vindicate himself”.
