Papers of Cathedral Surveyors

Records found in the office of Arthur Bensly Whittingham (d 1986), Surveyor to the Fabric 1933-1963, and subsequently Archaeological Advisor to the Chapter. Earlier surveyors were John Brown, salaried from 1853/4 but employed on an ad hoc basis from the 1830s, who resigned in 1869; his son, John Henry Brown 1869-1891; and his son Charles John Brown 1891-1932. Drawings presumably by the latter are signed Charles J. Brown. John Brown and John Henry Brown also practised as architects and drawings from their private practice were also found and are listed here (nos. 218-234).

Arthur Bensly Whittingham; 1901-1986; architect, antiquary; Rutland, East Midlands
