Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Architect, of Dublin. Thomas Drew was born in Victoria Place, Belfast, on 18 September 1838,(1) the son of Dr. Thomas Drew, described in the DNB as 'a militant Orange divine', who was rector of Christ Church, Durham Street, Belfast, and later of Loughinisland, Co. Down, and precentor of Down cathedral.(2) After receiving his early education in Belfast, the younger Thomas Drew was articled to CHARLES LANYON  CHARLES LANYON in 1854. According to a biographical note which appeared in the JRSAI  JRSAI when Drew was awarded his knighthood, the 'splendid opportunities for the acquisition of knowledge' offered in Lanyon's office, were increased when WILLIAM HENRY LYNN  WILLIAM HENRY LYNN entered into partnership with Lanyon; Lynn's 'artistic feelings…seemed to have acted on the apprentice as a charm, and to have completed the development of his powers.'(3) Between 1858 and 1861 Drew acted as Lanyon's superintendent and was clerk of works for two of his buildings. In 1861 he formed a brief partnership with THOMAS TURNER  THOMAS TURNER in Belfast,(4) but the following year he moved to Dublin, where, he became principal assistant to WILLIAM GEORGE MURRAY WILLIAM GEORGE MURRAY . The ability of the 'rising young architect' is noted in the Irish Builder's editorial on the architectural works exhibited at the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1862, and again the following year, when Drew is described as 'a young architect of uncommon talent'.(5) Drew became diocesan architect of the united dioceses of Down, Connor and Dromore in 1865, although he remained Murray's chief assistant until 1867. The first appearance of his name in Thom's Directory is in 1868, when his address is given as 60 Upper Sackville Street.(6) Thereafter he practised on his own without partners, although in 1870 he may have had some sort of brief professional association with WILLIAM FOGERTY WILLIAM FOGERTY , before the latter went to the United States.(7) His pupils and assistants included W.D.E. BUTLER BUTLER , JOHN FREDERICK FOGERTY JOHN FREDERICK FOGERTY , DANIEL J. FREEMAN DANIEL J. FREEMAN , JOSEPH ALOYSIUS GEOGHEGAN JOSEPH ALOYSIUS GEOGHEGAN , FREDERICK HICKS FREDERICK HICKS , WILLIAM SAMPSON JERVOIS WILLIAM SAMPSON JERVOIS , CHARLES HOFFE MITCHELL CHARLES HOFFE MITCHELL , JOHN MANSFIELD MITCHELL JOHN MANSFIELD MITCHELL , FRANCIS NOLAN FRANCIS NOLAN , LUCIUS O'CALLAGHAN LUCIUS O'CALLAGHAN , RICHARD CAULFIELD ORPEN RICHARD CAULFIELD ORPEN , JOHN CHARLES WILMOT  JOHN CHARLES WILMOT and probably HAROLD EDGAR COYLE. HAROLD EDGAR COYLE.

Church architecture was Drew's principal activity throughout his career, culminating in his design for St Anne's Cathedral, Belfast. In addition to his work in the dioceses of Down, Connor and Dromore, he was consulting architect at Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin,(8) which had been recently restored by GEORGE EDMUND STREET GEORGE EDMUND STREET ,(9) at St Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin, Armagh Protestant Cathedral and St Columb's Cathedral, Derry. He was responsible for the restoration of Holy Trinity Cathedral, Waterford, and in England his advice was sought on the subject of cracked nave pillars at Truro Cathedral.(10)

A man of immense energy, Drew seems to have found it impossible not to play an active part in any body or enterprise with which he was associated. Not only did he become president of the RIAI and AAI but also of the RSAI and the RHA,(11) the only person to have held all four positions. Soon after his arrival in Dublin he started to write for the Irish Builder, of which he was editor for a period.(12) He gave frequent papers on architectural and antiquarian topics,(13) and for many years delivered a lecture on the history and fabric of Christ Church Cathedral at Strongbow's tomb every St Stephen's Day.(14) In 1873 he was asked to deliver a course of twelve lectures on architecture to the Metropolitan School of Art, and in 1894 was appointed professor and lecturer in architecture at the school.(15) Only two months before his death he accepted the invitation of the National University of Ireland to become the first occupant of the new chair of architecture.(16) He acted as as assessor in a variety of architectural competitions,(17) and as arbitrator in at least two cases of disputed builder's claims.(18) For many years he was a commissioner of Blackrock Township.

For recreation Drew favoured architectural and archaeological excursions, including those organized by the English Architectural Association. He enjoyed sketching and measuring old buildings and, between 1872 and 1888, exhibited views of architectural subjects in Ireland, Britain, France and Belgium at the RHA, some of which were for sale.(19) He also collected antiques, notably miniatures, Waterford glass and several Georgian mantelpieces.(20)

Drew was awarded a knighthood in Queen Victoria's birthday honours for 1900, a distinction to which, as the Irish Builder agreed, 'No other architect in Ireland was in any degree so well entitled'.(21) In 1901 he was one of five architects invited to submit designs for a memorial to Queen Victoria in London,(22) and the following year he was one of six architects who sent in portfolios of their drawings in the preliminary competition for Liverpool Cathedral, when he received an honorable mention.(23) The honorary degree of LL.D. was conferred on him by Trinity College, Dublin, in 1905.(24)

In his latter years Drew, who was a hospitable bon vivant, suffered from gout.(25) He refers in a letter to his having been 'laid aside by illness' in 1909 but had 'returned to work in rude health' by the beginning of 1910. However in February 1910 he underwent an operation for appendicitis which left him in a critical condition;(26) after appearing to rally,(27) he died on 13 March, within hours of his life-long friend WILLIAM MANSFIELD MITCHELL WILLIAM MANSFIELD MITCHELL . He was buried in Deansgrange cemetery. A memorial brass executed by Sharpe & Emery under the supervision of HAROLD EDGAR COYLE  HAROLD EDGAR COYLE was placed in Christ Church Cathedral the following year, the money having been raised by subscription from members of the RIAI.(28) His widow, Adelaide Anne, sister of William George Murray, whom he had married in 1871, died on 9 January 1913.(29) There were no children of the marriage,(30) and Drew's effects, including his architectural library, were sold after Lady Drew's death.(31) The loving cup which had been presented to Drew by the RIAI in 1901 to mark his knighthood,(32) was bequeathed back to the RIAI.

Drew is described as being of a strong and assertive character, generally urbane and persuasive yet also outspoken and occasionally over-hasty. In spite of leading a more than ordinarily busy life, he was also 'amongst the most accessible of people - indeed a constant recipient of the confidences of the puzzled, the doubtful, or the beginner in the profession'.(33) There appears to be real warmth in the tributes of colleagues.(34) The improvement of the status of his profession was a principal concern throughout his career,(35) and he believed in the importance of fostering unity and cohesion among architects through professional associations.(36) For some years his own office at 22 Clare Street was home to the AAI, of which he was an original member and which he was active in reviving in 1896.

Drew acted as assessor for the following architectural competitions: RIAI President's Prize, 1866; (37) Newry Town Hall, 1891;(38) Mater Infirmorum Hospital, Belfast, 1893;(39); Cork Court House, 1891;(40) Nenagh RC Church, 1893;(41) proposed Parnell monument on Sugarloaf Mountain, 1895;(42) Enniskillen Town Hall, 1897;(43) Belfast Presbyterian Assembly Hall, 1900;(44) Carnegie Libraries, Belfast, 1905.(45)

Considering Drew's importance and success as an architect, surprisingly few drawings by him are known to have survived.   The Irish Archiitectural Archive holds the following (Accs.  2011/90 and 2012/56):  a signed, undated perspective view of a design for improving the belfry stage and spire of Broughshane Church of Ireland church, Co. Antrim;  an unexecuted  proposal, signed and dated 1871, for the enlargement of  Kilwarlin Upper Church of Ireland church, Co. Down;  a cut-down drawing with inscriptions  in Drew's hand showing longitudinal and transverse sections of an unknown church.  A  coloured perspective view of a font in the later accession could also possibly be by Drew.
