Bio Notes: Charles Thomas Marshall was born in 1867 and articled to William Lister Newcombe of Newcastle upon Tyne in 1883, remaining as assistant until 1888. He then became an assistant in Durham County Council Architect's Department for about a year prior to seeking wider experience with Richard Knill Freeman in Manchester in 1889-91. He commenced independent practice in Newcastle in 1892 and joined the Society of Architects in 1893.

Marshall formed a partnership with Robert Burns Dick in 1895 and the year after they won the competition for the Corporation Lodging House in Aberdeen. Born in 1868, Dick had been an apprentice in Newcombe's office alongside Marshall, and had joined the Newcastle practice of Armstrong & Knowles as an assistant in 1888, remaining there until setting up on his own in 1893.

The partnership of Marshall & Dick was dissolved in 1897 and in 1899 Dick became partner to the older James Thorburn Cackett, the practice name becoming Cackett & Burns Dick. In the same year Marshall moved office to London and formed a partnership with William Tweedy (born 1872), who was put in charge of the Newcastle office. Marshall & Tweedy remained in partnership until the Second World War.

Marshall died in 1940; Dick in 1954.
