Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Architect, of Belfast, active from circa 1902 until circa 1938. According to the 1911 census, Charles Macalister, youngest son of ALEXANDER MACALISTER ALEXANDER MACALISTER , was born in Belfast in 1863 or 1864. He had entered into partnership with his father by the time of the latter's death in 1897. He was chiefly engaged in designing houses for developers in Belfast, in particular for Francis Curley, in whose Whitehall Buildings he had his office for some years. He does not appear to have belonged to any professional body.  He married Elizabeth Mary, daughter of Patrick Delany, postmaster and surveyor of Belfast, at St Matthew's Catholic church, Belfast, on 6 September 1899(1) and had six children by the time of the 1911 census .
