Henry Bowman (architect)
Henry Bowman (1814–1883) was an English church architect and architectural historian.
Henry Bowman was born in Nantwich, Cheshire, in 1814, the second son of John Eddowes Bowman the Elder. Bowman worked as an architect in Manchester, from 1846 to about 1883, in partnership with Joseph Crowther.
Among the churches Bowman designed are Hyde Chapel, Cheshire and Mill Hill Chapel, Leeds. He was joint author with James Hadfield of Ecclesiastical Architecture of Great Britain, from the Conquest to the Reformation, 1845; and with his partner, J. S. Crowther, of The Churches of the Middle Ages, 1857. Bowman and Crowther trained a number of younger architects, including Thomas Worthington, John Garrard Elgood, and possibly Edward Salomons.
