John Prichard (6 May 1817 – 13 October 1886) was a Welsh architect of the neo-Gothic style.[1]

Biography[edit]

John Prichard was born in Llangan, Glamorgan on 6 May 1817, the son of the rector Richard Prichard.[2]

He established a practice in Llandaff, Cardiff where he became the diocesan architect. Between 1852 and 1863 he set up a partnership with John Pollard Seddon. Many of his major commissions were restoration works, most famously for Llandaff Cathedral (1843–69); and after his death on 13 October 1886 Prichard was buried on the south side of that cathedral.
