Note on Husband: Joseph Jopling (1)

JOPLING, Joseph (c.1789-1867) was the son of Joseph Jopling of Cotherstone, near Barnard Castle. Nothing is known of his training, but he was presumably the J Jopling who exhibited a 'Design for a Gothic Church' at the Royal Academy in 1816. He subsequently practised in London as a civil engineer and architect and was elected an Associate of the Institution of Civil Engineers in 1824. His professional interests included fireproof construction, slate quarrying and railway surveying, and the Society of Arts gave him a Gold Medal for an improvement in the construction of the ribs of groined arches. He was well known as an authority on theories of proportion and architectural draughtsmanship and was the inventor of a method of drawing curves which he published as 'The Septenary System of generating Curves by continued motion...", 1823. ... As an architect, Jopling's only recorded works appear to have been the Greek Revival Pantechnicon (a furniture repository, latterly 'Sotheby's Belgravia') in Motcomb Street, Belgravia, which he designed for Seth Smith in 1830-31, and the Column at Ammerdown Park, Somerset, in memory of T.S. Joliffe, 1853-55. He died in Kensington on 10 May 1867 leaving at least three sons, one of whom, Charles Michael Jopling (1820-1863) was a civil engineer.

Ammerdown Memorial, 1853

near Buckland House, Somerset

Thomas Samuel Joliffe was a wealthy landowner and an MP when he died aged 78 in 1924. His bachelor son, John, inherited the estate and in 1853 commissioned Joseph Jopling, a civil engineer and architect to built the monument. He chose an elevated part of the estate making the glass-topped dome 700 feet above sea level. John Joliffe died one year later and his younger brother the 73-year-old Rev Thomas Robert Joliffe, completed the column.

Designs for agricultural buildings, including labourers’ cottages, farm-houses and out-offices, conveniently arranged around fold-yards, and adapted to farms of various descriptions : to which are prefixed, an essay on the improvement of the condition of cottagers (etc) . Joseph Jopling, architect, editor. Author: Waistell, Charles, London, Longman (etc) ("and by the editor, No.24 Somerset Street, Portman Square") 1827.

First and only edition of this extensive book on the planning and design of farm buildings, based on the unpublished writings of Charles Waistell (died 1825), Chairman of the Committee of Agriculture of the Society of Arts, and edited for publication by Joseph Jopling (c.1789-1867), one of Waistell’s nephews. Waistell had experience in this specialist area going back to the 1770s, and this is the book to have if one wants to understand the practicalities of planning and constructing farmhouses, farmyards and outbuildings in late eighteenth-century Britain. Incidental references in the text show that Waistell knew personally both the prison reformer John Howard and the architect John Carr of York; while his nephew Jopling, an architect and civil engineer, was later to write a number of highly regarded books on the theory of perspective drawing. "Waistell’s principal aim was to ameliorate the poor living conditions of rural labourers while at the same time increasing agricultural production."
