Robert Trollope (d.1686)


Robert Trollope (some sources spell as Trollop) was an archtect who worked mainly in Northumberland and County Durham. He was originally born in York to a family of stonemasons. Trollope built the Exchange and Guildhall for the Corporation of Newcastle from 1655 and 1658. Trollope died in 1686 and was buried at St Mary's Church in Gateshead.
