Mr Thomas Chambers Hine

Thomas Chambers Hine was an architect who is known to have worked at the Park Estate, Nottingham, owned by the Duke of Newcastle.

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]

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.
