Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Architect, of Dublin. According to the English census of 1891, Frederick Jermyn, second son of William Jermyn, a carpenter and builder in Heigham, Norfolk, was born in Norwich in 1872.   He is described in the census as an architect and surveyor's pupil.  He had moved to Dublin and had apparently entered the office of WALTER GLYNN DOOLIN  WALTER GLYNN DOOLIN by 1895, when he exhibited a view of the south porch of Doolin's Church of Our Lady of the Rosary at Nenagh at the Royal Hibernian Academy.(2) In the same exhibition he also showed a drawing of the Casino at Marino.(3) The following year, when he exhibited a competition design for a seaside hotel(4) at the Royal Hibernian Academy, he gave as his address 12 Dawson Street, where Doolin had his office. He subsequently entered the office of JAMES FRANKLIN FULLER JAMES FRANKLIN FULLER . He had become principal assistant by the time Fuller took him into partnership circa 1916, the partnership becoming known as FULLER & FULLER & amp; JERMYN JERMYN . Jermyn carried on the practice of Fuller & Jermyn after Fuller's death at the end of 1924 and until his own death in 1945.(5) 

According to the Dublin census of 1911, Jermyn married his wife, Annie, circa 1899.  At the time of the census they had a son, Frederick, and two daughters.   The younger Frederick also became an architect and carried on his father's practice, which is still extant(1995).
