OULD, EDWARD AUGUSTUS LYLE #
- Born: 1852 Died: 1909
English architect, of Liverpool, for whom see his obituary in The Builder 96, 6 February 1909, 157,(1) A. Stuart Gray, Edwardian Architecture (1985), 275, and Directory of British Architects 1834-1914 (RIBA 2001), 296. Edward Augustus Lyle Ould practised in partnership with George Enoch Grayson and George Hastwell Grayson as Grayson & Ould and was much employed by Lever Brothers at Port Sunlight, Cheshire. In Dublin Ould designed the Sunlight Building at the corner of Parliament Street and Essex Quay, dismissed by the Irish Builder as 'extraordinary and at once pretentious and mean'.(2)
(1) According to this source, he was a son of the Rev. Fielding Ould, thus presumably a descendant of Sir Fielding Ould (1710-1789), Master of the Dublin Lying In Hospital, whose granddaughter Eliza married Sir Richard Morrison.
