CHAPMAN, StephenBorn: 1845
'Passed out of two Architectural schools in Ireland at the age of twenty-two, went to the ROYAL ENGINEER's headquarters in England and worked there as an architect ... his behaviour resulted in him being posted to different parts of the world. He worked in Gibraltar, Bermuda, Simonstown in the Cape (where he designed many of the British Forces buildings) and finally in Natal' (Martin 1980:266). He was reputed, via a history of his life by his granddaughter, Mrs B Hodge, to have had a hand in the design of Addington Hospital in the 1870s. (Martin 1980:266)
