Sir Thomas Newenham Deane (1828-1899)

Sir Thomas Newenham Deane (1828-1899) was born in Cork – his father was also a noted architect and educated at Trinity College Dublin. He joined his father’s practice in 1850 and was made a partner the following year along with Benjamin Woodward. The firm then developed a gothic style based on the naturalistic principles as laid down by John Ruskin. This was to result in the practice playing an important role in the gothic revival in England.
