Architect George Halford Fellowes Prynne

George Halford Fellowes Prynne was born on 2 April 1853 at Wyndham Square, Plymouth, Devon. He was the second son of the Rev. George Rundle Prynne and Emily Fellowes, and brother of the painter Edward Arthur Fellowes Prynne. He studied at St Mary?s College, Harlow. He went on to Chardstock College, and thence to Eastman's Royal Naval Academy at Southsea. He was student at the Royal Academy in 1876 and 1877-78. Prynne designed many parish churches in England, mostly in the southeast and southwest, and almost always on a grand scale of high church Gothic Revival architecture. He also did much restoration work, and in all is said to have been involved in over 200 buildings. Prynne was particularly noted for his screen work. Examples of his screens can be found at St Nicholas, Taplow, a stone screen and a metal screen, and a wooden screen at St Mary, Henley-on-Thames.
