John Bryce

John Bryce was a Scottish architect active, particularly in Glasgow, Scotland in the 19th century.

Bryce was born around 1805, the son of Edinburgh builder, William Bryce and the younger brother of the architects, David Bryce (born 1803, died 1876) and William Bryce, junior (died 5 September 1823).

Both of Bryce's elder brothers, David and William junior, were pupils of, and assistants to, the architect William Burn (born 1789, died 1870). Amongst his many works, John may have assisted William Burn's office with the details of Harlaxton, Manor in Lincolnshire, England.

John Bryce is particularly noted for the work he carried out at the Jews Cemetery in Glasgow, Scotland. Bryce died on 13 August 1851 and was buried in Glasgow Necropolis.
