James Constantien Marillier (1827-1890)

1890 Obituary [1]

JAMES CONSTANTIEN MARILLIER was born at Harrow-on-the-Hill, Middlesex, on the 21st of June, 1827.

He was articled to Thomas Wicksteed, Engineer to the East London, and several other London Water-works Companies, and remained with him for about six years.

He then, after some temporary engagements, went to Hawks, Crawshay and Sons, at Gateshead-on-Tyne, in whose employ he gained considerable experience in the construction of iron girder-bridges, which subsequently proved of great advantage to him. He was afterwards for some time engaged in superintending the construction of the Turin and Novara Railway in Italy.

Mr. Marillier then went to India, and was engaged for several years by Brassey, Wythes and Henfrey, in superintending the construction of the numerous iron bridges on the Delhi and Lahore, and the Eastern Bengal Railways, for the construction of which they had the contracts. All the works under his charge were carried out very satisfactorily. Whilst in India he established works in Calcutta, in conjunction with Mr. W. H. Edwards, since deceased, as partner, at which numerous iron bridges, jetties, wharves, and other important work were constructed. . . . [more]
