Basic Biographical Details

Name: Edward Eldon Deane
Designation: Architect
Born: c. 1852
Bio Notes: Edward Eldon Deane was born c. 1852. He was articled to Sheard & Hanstock of Batley in 1868 and subsequently worked as an assistant to Edward Middleton Barry and George Edmund Street. He commenced independent practice in London in 1878 and in 1880 went into partnership with Alfred Hessell Tiltman (b. 1854). Deane was admitted ARIBA on 9 January 1882, his proposers being Lewis Henry Isaacs and Henry Louis Florence. The practice seems to have been in some difficulty and did not last; Tiltman took a job as lecturer in Architecture at the School of Estate Management in 1882 and, probably after the break-up of the partnership, Deane allowed his associateship to lapse. Although Tiltman was admitted FRIBA on 19 November 1888, his proposers being Plumbe, James Brooks and Edward Cookworthy Robins, the practice had an unsettled history, moving four times before Tiltman died on 7 July 1910. It was largely dependent for business on competitions mainly for hospitals and public baths (Harper records it as being successful in eight before 1900), and seems to have been famed as a demanding office in which to work.
