Selected: ECCLESIASTICAL COMMISSIONERS


Born: -
Died: -


In 1833, as a result of the Church Temporalities Act, the BOARD OF FIRST FRUITS  BOARD OF FIRST FRUITS was reorganised as the Ecclesiastical Commission, which continued the Board's church building programme. For the first ten years the existing arrangement whereby there was an architect responsible for each of the four ecclesiastical provinces was retained, with WILLIAM FARRELL  WILLIAM FARRELL as architect for the province of Armagh, FREDERICK DARLEY  FREDERICK DARLEY for Dublin, JOSEPH WELLAND  JOSEPH WELLAND for Tuam (GEORGE PAPWORTH  GEORGE PAPWORTH from 1837-1842?), and JAMES PAIN  JAMES PAIN for Cashel. In March 1837 the Board advertised for architects to superintend the building and repair of the churches in the four districts, noting that architects residing in the respective districts would be preferred.(1) In 1843 a centralised arrangement was adopted; Joseph Welland became the Commissioners' architect, based in Dublin, with assistant architects in the different dioceses. Following Welland's death on 6 March 1860, his son WILLIAM JOHN WELLAND  WILLIAM JOHN WELLAND and WILLIAM GILLESPIE WILLIAM GILLESPIE , a district inspector for Cork and the surrounding counties, were jointly appointed to the post. The commission came to an end with the disestablishment of the Church of Ireland on 31 December 1870.

Other architects who worked for the Ecclesiastical Commissioners include: WILLIAM BRADY  WILLIAM BRADY (Tuam), JULIAN DE BALMONT JULIAN DE BALMONT , JOHN GUY FERGUSON  JOHN GUY FERGUSON (Derry/Raphoe), JAMES FRANKLIN FULLER  JAMES FRANKLIN FULLER (North Western Division), JOHN HENRY FULLERTON  JOHN HENRY FULLERTON (Armagh), WILLIAM TURNEY FULLERTON  WILLIAM TURNEY FULLERTON (Armagh), WILLIAM HAGERTY  WILLIAM HAGERTY (Antrim); ALEXANDER HARDY  ALEXANDER HARDY (Derry), WILLIAM HUNTER  WILLIAM HUNTER (Derry/Raphoe), J.F. JOHNSTON JOHNSTON , PATRICK LEAHY  PATRICK LEAHY (Tuam); PETER MADDEN PETER MADDEN , JAMES W. MARTIN  JAMES W.
