John Cubbon was the son of Thomas and Charlotte Cubbon of The Priory Douglas Isle of Man and educated at King Williams College IoM May 1889-Midsummer1890 [King Williams College Register 1833-1904 page 250]. Details of his training are obscure but must have been rapid, for in 1898 he was described as having been “for some years” the principal assistant of J Gibbons Sankey. Following the early and sudden death of J Gibbons Sankey in December 1898, his practice was entirely assigned to John Cubbon and his brother, Thomas W Cubbon, an architect already in practice in Birkenhead. The Manchester practice was continued under the name of Sankey, Cubbon and Cubbon. Thomas W Cubbon continued to maintain his own office in Birkenhead and he would appear to have entered this partnership solely to provide his younger brother with initial management expertise and Sankey’s clients with some degree of reassurance. The partnership was dissolved in 1901, after which John Cubbon worked alone under the style of Sankey and Cubbon. By 1907 the style Sankey and Gibbon had been discontinued, the practice being henceforth in John Cubbon’s sole name. He was elected ARIIBA in 1899 and FRIBA in 1910.
John Cubbon retired in 1935 and died on 5 May 1960 at The Portland Nursing Home Buxton, the funeral being held at Manchester Crematorium on 10 May 1960.
He married twice, both wives pre-deceasing him.
