Basic Biographical Details

Name: Peddie, Kinnear & Peddie
Designation: Architectural practice
Started: 1878
Ended: 1879
Bio Notes: The partnership of Peddie, Kinnear & Peddie was formed in 1878 when John Dick Peddie (born 1824) and Charles George Hood Kinnear (born 1830) took into partnership Peddie's son John More Dick Peddie (born 1853), who had served a short articled apprenticeship with the family firm and had subsequently worked for George Gilbert Scott before returning as an assistant in 1875. When he became a partner the practice was also joined by his brother, Peddie's fifth son Walter Lockhart Dick Peddie (born 1865), who was signing drawings by the early age of fourteen.

In 1879 the elder Peddie withdrew from the practice at the age of fifty-five, his stated intention being to enter politics, although the real reason was at least as much concerned with repairing his family fortunes and providing for his unmarried sisters and daughters by becoming a fund manager. The remaining partners continued the practice as Kinnear & Peddie.
