Quick Reference

(1803–90).

Born John Corby in England, he emigrated to Canada in 1832, and settled in Toronto, where he had a successful practice. He established Neo-Classicism as the style for commercial and public buildings (e.g. the Bank of British North America (1845), the Lunatic Asylum (1846–9), and the Third Gaol (1838)—all destroyed). His finest surviving building is the Leeds and Greenville County Court House, Brockville, Ontario (1841–5—with a handsome Ionic portico). He also designed several churches in the Gothic Revival style (e.g. Christ Church, Holland Landing (1843) ).
