Career and family
Waller was articled to the civil engineer and county surveyor for Gloucestershire, Thomas Fulljames (1808–74), who proposed him as a Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects in 1856. Waller worked in partnership with Fulljames from 1846–70 and with Walter Bryan Wood from 1852. One of Waller's sons, Frederick William Waller (1848–1933), was articled to his father and was in partnership with him from 1873.
Another of Waller's sons, Samuel Edward Waller, became an artist. Waller's grandson Noel Huxley Waller (1881–1961) also became an architect.
Waller applied his architectural training to antiquarianism. In 1848 he drew a plan and sections of an historic barn at Shilton, Oxfordshire, that had stone walls and an aisled timber frame. Later the barn was reputedly gutted by fire and at the foot of his drawings Waller added "All now destroyed". However, in 1971 the probable remains of the barn at Shilton with were identified with the help of Waller's drawings.
