Pevsner for Goole? Architect W.?.Moffat?

edit

In an unsourced update to St John's Church, Goole, @Wikijohnword: said the architects were "William Hurst and W. B. Moffat". NHLE agrees. Hurst has since been amended to William Hurst (architect), a red link. I thought I'd found our man Moffat as William Bonython Moffatt (right initial, plausible dates, worked with George Gilbert Scott), but ... the Dictionary of Scottish Architects shows the church as by William Hurst and William Lambie Moffatt/Moffat. The Friends of Doncaster Mansion House have a page "Doncaster Architects: William Hurst" about an architect born 1787, which says that in 1838 he "entered into partnership with a Scotsman, William Lambie Moffatt. This period has less local interest as much of the practice’s work involved churches and public buildings elsewhere."

Has anyone got a copy of Pevsner covering Goole which might have something to say, or any other information about our redlinked architects here?

William Lambie Moffatt isn't redlinked anywhere but shows up in a search as architect of six buildings which have articles, and another when he's spelled with just the one "t" as "Moffat".

Ahah: just found this which credits Moffatt with the church at Goole! So NHLE and the church archives have got it wrong? All a puzzle. There's another bio of him here which identifies a lot of his workhouses, hospitals and schools but unfortunately doesn't identify his churches! PamD 15:24, 2 February 2024 (UTC)Reply

Apologies for the lack of source material, this was largely taken from newspaper archives of Goole Times giving a history of the church throughout the years, particularly that from 25 years ago commemorating the 150th anniversary of the church. Wikijohnword (talk) 15:31, 2 February 2024 (UTC)Reply
"The church, which was built by Messrs. Hurst and Moffatt, of Doncaster" according to the Leeds Intelligencer - Saturday 29 April 1848 Page 8. https://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/viewer/bl/0000193/18480429/049/0008 May be useful for consecration detail. Keith D (talk) 20:26, 2 February 2024 (UTC)Reply
...and Pevsner states that the church was " built by the Aire and Calder Navigation company 1843-8. The architects were William Hurst and W. B. Moffat."[1] Regards. The joy of all things (talk) 20:45, 2 February 2024 (UTC)Reply
