LEPPER, JOHN CHARLES
- Born: 1875/76 Died: -
Architect, of Belfast. According to the 1911 census, John Charles Lepper was born in Co. Down in 1875 or 1876 He served a three-year apprenticeship with VINCENT CRAIG and stayed on as an assistant in Craig's office for a further three and a half years. By 1900 he had formed a partnership with WILLIAM BERTRAM FENNELL but by 1909 he was working on his own, Fennell having abandoned architecture for motor engineering. Lepper himself retired soon afterwards; in the 1911 census he is described as 'Retired Architect' although only thirty-five years old. He probably had no need to earn his living, as he was living with his widowed mother, brother and sister in a household which had four living-in servants.
