"He was a man of wide and generous sympathies and did much for the town, more especially for the humbler classes, to whom he gave his professional services ungrudgingly." (North Down Herald And County Down Independent, November 21, 1902, page 5.) Dr. Dunlop was the son of a Presbyterian minister. He graduated MB and subsequently MD from Queen's College, Belfast. He worked for a time as a house surgeon at the Royal Hospital, Belfast, then established a private practice. He was settled at Holywood for more than forty years. He married Elizabeth Henry (1823-1874; daughter of P. Shuldham Henry and widow of William Barron Stanton) in 1861; they had two sons and one daughter. In 1881 he married Elizabeth "Bessie" Moore (sister of John Byers Gunning Moore), with whom he had two sons and a daughter. Dr. Dunlop served as a magistrate for County Down and also was a member of the Holyood Urban Council. A member of the Church of Ireland, he was a People's Warden for his parish. A deeply respectful obituary in the Belfast News-Letter (November 15, 1902, page 10) describes him as "a staunch Conservative and a warm supporter of the Unionist cause by every means in his power." An account of his funeral appeared in the Irish News And Belfast Morning News on November 18, 1902, page 4.
