Mr Alfred Jenoure

Alfred Jenoure was a Scottish architect who practiced in London, Liverpool and Edinburgh. He was born about 1824 in Rothley, Leicestershire. He appears to have been a pupil of Richard Cromwell Carpenter whom he referred to in a letter to Sir William Stirling of Keir as 'my architectural tutor'. He exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1847 and was soon afterwards commissioned by Stirling to make changes at Keir, the first record of him being in March 1849 when estimates were received. Initially the work was supervised by William Stirling II as clerk of works, but finding that Stirling was 'useless for anything except the Gothic', Jenoure gave up his London office and became 'resident architect' at £3 a week in addition to his 5% commission. The work did not proceed satisfactorily. Jenoure left Keir on 1 September 1850, setting up practice for a time at 120 George Street, Edinburgh and spending some time seeking commissions in Aberdeenshire. By the end of 1850 he had transferred his practice to Liverpool. At the time of the 1851 census he was lodging in the North British Hotel, North Queen Street, in Glasgow. In 1861 at the time of the census he was living in the Turk's Head Inn in Wetheral, Cumberland with his wife and his daughter and son. In 1871 he was in London but is not listed in the 1881 census and presumably had died by that date.
