Quick Reference

Brothers, English architects, and builders. Pre-eminent among architect-craftsmen, Francis Smith became named ‘of Warwick’ thanks to his and William's rebuilding of Warwick after the fire of 1694. As a thoroughly reliable builder, he established an immense practice working on country houses, many to his own design, such as Chicheley Hall, Buckinghamshire (1719–25), and Sutton Scarsdale, Derbyshire (1719–24).
