Architect. Born in Warwickshire. John was an assistant to Sir Charles Barry and assisted him in the drawings of the Houses of Parliament. John was a prominent bank architect at a time when joint-stock banking was an innovation. His 1849 National Bank of Scotland branch in Glasgow led to perhaps his best-known work, the former National Provincial Bank in Bishopsgate, London, designed in 1862. It was listed Grade I in 1950 and now known as Gibson Hall. John is responsible for several churches in and around North Wales, but perhaps his most notable church is St. Margaret's in Bodelwyddan, Denbighshire, more popularly known as the Marble Church, Bodelwyddan, declared sacred in 1860. The church is a prominent landmark in the lower Vale of Clwyd and is visible for many miles. It lies just off the A55 trunk road. John was awarded the Royal Gold Medal for services to architecture in 1890. He died of pneumonia at his residence.
