James Barlow Fraser was born at Pendleton, Salford, in 1835 the son of James Fraser and Agnes, and was christened James Benjamin Meredith Barlow Fraser on 31 January 1836 at the Collegiate Church (Cathedral) Manchester. He was articled to his father for five years and joined him in partnership about 1859. The Manchester directories indicate that the partnership established a branch office in Leeds in 1863. J B Fraser probably moved permanently to Leeds following his marriage to Emma Louisa Calvert, daughter of Thomas Calvert in May 1865. However, the Manchester Directories continue to record the Manchester partnership up to 1878.
J H Barlow worked closely with his brother the civil engineer John Fraser (1819-1881) on many railway projects in the West Riding of Yorkshire. He was one of the early members of the Leeds and Yorkshire Architectural Society and was president for a number of years. He was elected a Fellow of the RIBA in 1872
