Edward La Trobe Bateman
|Edward La Trobe Bateman|
Bateman was probably born in Lower Wyke, Yorkshire, the son of John Bateman, a manufacturer, and his wife Mary (née) La Trobe. His brothers were John Frederick Bateman, the hydraulic engineer, and Christian Henry Bateman, an Anglican Church minister and a composer of hymns. His nephew Benjamin Latrobe was a notable architect, and a cousin Charles Latrobe was first lieutenant-governor of the colony of the state of Victoria in Australia.
In 1856, the Carlton Gardens in Melbourne were redesigned and Edward la Trobe Bateman was engaged to do the designs. The path layout and other features were built, although limitations on funding for maintenance resulted in frequent criticism.
