John Billing, FRIBA was an architect from Reading, Berkshire. His grandfather Richard Billing (circa 1747–1826),[3] father Richard Billing (1784–1853), brothers Richard (1814–84) and Arthur (1824–96) and nephew Arthur Ernest (died 1920) were also architects.[2]

Career[edit]

Until at least 1854 John Billing practiced in Reading, Berkshire, where he was Borough Surveyor.[4] Billing addressed a meeting of the 1849–50 session of the Oxford Architectural Society on the subject of "Parsonage Houses".[5]

Billing had moved his practice to London by 1856, in which year he was made a Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects.[1] Philip Webb (1831–1915) was a pupil of his.
