SAMUEL EVANS, COUNTY SURVEYOR OF FLINTSHIRE, 1903-1921, RECORDS

Scope and Content

Samuel Evans, after taking up his appointment as county surveyor of Flintshire in 1903, at first resided at Hope but soon after moved to Grosvenor Street, Mold. His duties at that time included responsibility for schools and other public buildings owned by the County Council, in addition to roads and bridges. Apart from his war service as major in the Royal Engineers, when he spent several years in France, he served Flintshire County Council until June 1921 when he was appointed Divisional Roads Engineer for Wales and Monmouth under the newly formed Ministry of Transport Roads Department. He and his staff were concerned with the construction and design of several new buildings, including the design of Holywell Cottage Hospital. This experience is reflected in his dual qualifications of Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects and Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers.
