In a 1922 copy of the publication notes and queries

There is a mention of "The curate's grandfather, a certain John Williams (1727 - 1816) was an architect and surveyor of some note who flourished in the town of Shrewsbury in the middle of the eighteen century."

He would be my several times great grandfather. Does anyone know anything about this John Williams?

Hello Rob

I presume there is a register of former architects but at the moment I can only find the Architects Registration Board which lists current architects.

I suggest you have a search around this idea and possibly use the 'Contact Us' (top right) on the above web site to see if they can help you.

Also try a search on The National Archives (TNA) web site
and the Shropshire Archives web site
