Basic Biographical Details

Name: James Henderson
Designation: Architect
Died: 7 May 1883
Bio Notes: James Henderson advertised for contractors from Kildrummy from 1856 to 1859. It seems very likely that he is the James Henderson who is described in his wife's will as 'sometime architect, afterwards farmer, Towie, Aberdeenshire'. His own will makes no mention of the fact that he had been an architect but describes him as a farmer who 'resided at New Morlich, parish of Towie'. He appears to have died on 7 May 1883 and his wife, Jean Hosie, died on 9 March 1892 in Lerwick, Shetland. (Towie is adjacent to the parishes of Kildrummy and Strathdon). Nothing further is yet known of his career as an architect.
