Notes on Architects ...
* James Blake (1849-1919) ...
A Scot, an engineer, the son of the owner of Blake, Barclay & Co sugar machinery manufacturers, James Blake arrived in Liverpool in 1875 as Tate's Foreman Engineer at the Love Lane refinery. Soon after, Henry Tate purchased a derilict shipyard in Silvertown and sent Blake to report on it's use for the possible expansion of the business. Tate agreed with Blake's findings and told him to go and build a refinery within the year. It took 9 months and began production in 1878. "But there is no doubt that he did an excellent job of Thames Refinery and can be regarded as its architect."
* James Craig (1744-1795) ...
Born in Edinburgh, Craig claimed the winning design for the layout of the New Town of his home city, but although it was not built true to his plans, he had considerable input into the working out of the detail. He was also employed as a town planner in Glasgow, where the layout of streets in Blythswood and Meadowflatt appear to have been his, but not the architectural detail. (Colvin)
* Charles Dyson (c1800-1868) ...
Born c1800 Tottenham, Mdx (son of Charles & Elizabeth Dyson, All Hallows Tottenham. Sally, his sister, bpt 1796) (census and PRs)
* Joseph Michael Gandy (1771-1843) ...
A promising youngster, who then travelled in Italy having to return in a hurry in 1797 owing to his sponsor's bankuptcy and the advances of Napoleon's armies. He practised on his own, but initially found little work in either Liverpool or London, and with a large family finances were often difficult. Especially noted for his independent approach to architectural aesthetics. (Colvin)
* J & R Houston ...
(Nothing yet) Description of Lyle's refinery at Silvertown in The Grocer, 5 May 1883, copy published in The Plaistow Story, by Oliver Lyle, 1960, along with many early photographs.
* Walter Robert Kinipple (1832-1901) ...
Born 1832 St Anne Limehouse, London, s/o George Topliff Kinipple, shipwright & Elizabeth Sarah his wife (PRs)
* James Lansdown (1796-1838) ...
Involved with works around Regent's Park, close to were he lived. Shortly before he died he designed offices for Phoenix Fire Insurance Co in Lombard Street. (Colvin)
* Thomas Leverton (1743-1824) ...
The great London sugar houses of the 18th and early to mid-19th centuries intrigue architectural historians as only two have been ascribed to an architect - a Charles Dyson of The Grove, Stratford, Essex, about whom very little is known. Dyson operated in the middle of the 19th century and designed the vast sugar house which stood in an expansive yard on the east side of Leman Street behind No. 78, as well as an extension to a sugar house on Well Street behind the west side of Wellclose Square, St Geo East. [see above]

* Duncan Stewart & Co, Glasgow ...
Sugar machinery manufacturers established in 1840 by Peter Stewart in Anderston, Glasgow. Joined by his son Duncan, and in 1864 moved to larger premises at London Road Ironworks in Bridgeton. Became a limited company in 1891, liquidated in both 1902 and 1920s, restructured, etc, acquired by Booker Bros 1956.
1871 Introduced hydraulic pressure cylinders for sugar cane mills.
