Edward Prioleau Warren

Edward Prioleau Warren, British architect and archaeologist, was born at Cotham in Bristol on 30 October 1856, as the fifth son of A.W. Warren, JP. He was educated at Clifton College in Bristol, and subsequently articled to G.F. Bodley, whose biography he later wrote. He provided illustrations for the Transactions of the Guild and School of Handicraft in 1890. He joined the Art Workers Guild in 1892 and was Master in 1913. He practised extensively in Oxford, no doubt helped by the fact that his brother, Sir Herbert Warren was President of Magdalen College. Basil Bramston Hooper, later an architect in New Zealand, was in his office, c.1901-04. In 1901, he was added to the list of architects authorised to work on the Grosvenor estate in London, but he never did so. In 1914, he gave evidence on behalf of the Commissioners of Works into a proposed Preservation Order on 75 Dean St., Soho, London. During the First World War he was seconded to the Serbian Army, and designed the War Cemetery at Basra. In 1916, he was said to have had considerable experience of hospital construction. At the beginning of his career, he built and altered a number of churches, but he is known principally for domestic buildings in an understated revival of English late 17th century styles: his main works were lodgings for Oxford colleges and minor country houses.

Warren married Margaret Morrell, and one of their sons, Brigadier-General Christopher P. Warren became a noted bibliophile; another, Peter Warren, succeeded to his father's practice as an architect. Warren himself was a friend and adviser to the American novelist, Henry James, who lived at Lamb House, Rye, Sussex, UK; their correspondence is now in the Huntington Library in San Marino, California. He died on 23 November 1937.
