Thomas Chambers Hine (31 May 1813 – 6 February 1899) was an architect based in Nottingham.[1]


He was born in Covent Garden into a prosperous middle-class family, the eldest son of Jonathan Hine (1780–1862), a hosiery manufacturer and Melicent Chambers (1778–1845).[2] He was articled to the London architect Matthew Habershon until 1834.

In 1837 he arrived in Nottingham and formed a partnership with the builder William Patterson. This business relationship was dissolved in 1849. He worked from 1857[3] with Robert Evans JP until early in 1867 and thereafter with his son George Thomas Hine until his retirement around 1890.

He was nominated as a Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects in 1878, but this appears to have been voided.[4]

Personal life[edit]

He married Mary Betts (1813–1893) in 1837 and together had seven children surviving to adulthood. Their eldest child, Mary Melicent Hine (1838–1928) became a nurse and founded the Nottingham Children's Hospital on Postern Street in Nottingham.
