Basic Biographical Details

Name: William Reid
Designation: Architect
Born: 1825
Died: 22 August 1893
Bio Notes: Alexander Reid, born 1816 or 1817, and William Reid, born 1825, were nephews and pupils of William Robertson of Elgin and inherited his practice following his death on 12 June 1841. William and Alexander Reid were the sons of Charles Reid, farmer and his wife Margaret Robertson.

The practice William and Alexander inherited was at first in Alexander's name only as William was only sixteen, but the latter became a partner in 1843 or 1844. A third brother, Charles, born 1828, was presumably articled to his brothers in or about 1842 and at some point left them to gain wider experience. He became chief draughtsman with Brown & Wardrop in Edinburgh, and after Thomas Brown retired or died in 1872 or 1873 he was taken into partnership.

In the mid-1840s the Reids moved their practice to Inverness, their address there being 6 Academy Street (and 39 Union Street) in the earlier 1860s when they were in partnership with an unidentified Mackenzie. By 1868 they had moved to 141 High Street and the brothers were on their own again. In late 1874 or 1875 George Melven was taken into partnership as A & W Reid & Melven, but by 1878 the practice was again A & W Reid. By the mid-1880s they had returned to Elgin with an office at Post Office Buildings, Commerce Street, their main clients being the Cawdor and Moray estates.

William Reid died in Elgin on 22 August 1893. He was unmarried. Alexander took their chief assistant John Wittet into partnership.
