Granville Edward Stewart Streatfeild (1869-1947) was born in Howick, Northumberland. His brother, W.C. Streatfeild, was vicar of Eastbourne and briefly Bishop of Lewes. The spelling of the name seems to be correct, though it also occurs, e g in the 1901 census, as “˜Streatfield’. In that year, already an established architect, he was in Frant with his parents. He was a pupil of Sir T.G. Jackson and articled to William O. Milne and J.C. Hall – Milne had worked with T.E.C. Streatfeild – and afterwards worked for Sir Reginald Blomfield before practising in London.
