PAPWORTH, CHARLES WILLIAM
- Born: - Died: -
Architect, of Dublin. Charles William Papworth was a younger son of GEORGE PAPWORTH and brother of JOHN THOMAS PAPWORTH and COLLINS EDGAR PAPWORTH. (1) He exhibited at the Royal Hibernian Academy between 1838 and 1853 and again between 1861 and 1864.(2) In 1855 he succeeded to his father's practice(3) but, if the number of recorded works in the Dublin Builder is any reflection of his output, does not appear to have flourished greatly. His design for 'a villa in the Tudor style' exhibited at the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1863, received scathing notice in the Dublin Builderas a piece of work 'which we presume is one of that gentleman's earliest productions as it exhibits neither careful study in the design, nor labour in the execution'.(4) Papworth was honorary secretary of the Dublin branch of the Architectural Photographic Association in 1859.(5) He disappears from the directories after 1880.
The Irish Architectural Archive has what appears to be a survey plan of the Museum of Irish Industry on St Stephen's Green, signed by Charles Papworth and dated September 1866.(Acc. 96/81/1)
