English builder and architect. In partnership for a time with Thomas Jelly (d. 1781—the competent Palladian architect who designed King Edward's Grammar School, Broad Street (1752–4), and houses in Abbey and Milson Streets), he erected several buildings in and around Bath, Som. The most important was Lansdown Crescent (1789–93), con-vex–concave–convex on plan, responding to the contours of the landscape, and combining the Classical and the Picturesque. He was also responsible for St James's Square (1791–4), the Gothic Christ Church, Montpelier Row (1798), and New Bond Street (1805–7).
