Biography[edit]

Ashlin was born in Ireland on 28 May 1837, the son of J. M. Ashlin, J.P. He was educated at St Mary's College, Oscott; and subsequently was a pupil of Edward Welby Pugin, whose partner he became in Ireland from 1860 to 1868.[2][3]

He was the architect of Queenstown Cathedral in Cobh, County Cork, and of fifty other churches dotted about Ireland. He also built Portrane Asylum at a cost of £300,000.[2]

He was a Member of the Royal Hibernian Academy and Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects. In 1867 he married Mary Pugin (1844-1933), daughter of Augustus Welby Pugin, the Gothic revivalist.[2][3]
