English architect, he specialized in breweries, designing or altering over seventy of them, including Hole's Castle Brewery, Newark-on-Trent, Notts. (1882—a rich French-Renaissance composition of stone, enlivened by vermiculation, and with a large clock tower), and the Hook Norton Brewery, Oxon. (c.1870—an extraordinary building of brick, ironstone, cast iron, timber, and weather-boarding). The firm continued under his sons, W. Stovin and J. W. Bradford, and designed several lavishly ornamented public-houses.
