(1799–1883). English architect. Apprenticed to his eldest brother, Thomas Cubitt, in 1815, he worked in the office of Henry Edward Kendall before entering into partnership with his brothers in 1824. He set up on his own in the 1830s. He designed many houses in Belgravia and Bloomsbury built by the Cubitts, and in 1837–9 he designed and built the Italianate houses on the south side of Lowndes Square, London. In the 1840s he became a successful railway architect, and was responsible for the terminus of the Great Northern Railway at King's Cross (1851–2).
