Cockerell, Samuel Pepys

Cockerell, Samuel Pepys (1753–1827). English architect. A pupil of Sir Robert Taylor, he held several important official posts from 1774. On Taylor's death, he became Surveyor to the Foundling and Pulteney Estates in London: he was also Surveyor to the Victualling Office (from 1791), to the East India Company (from 1806), to the See of Canterbury, and to St Paul's Cathedral (1811–19).

He was responsible for laying out the Bloomsbury Estate for the Governors of the Foundling Hospital, London (from 1790), and developed a large and prosperous practice. His pupils included his son, C. R. Cockerell, Latrobe, Porden, and Tatham. His architecture was eclectic and varied from work of an advanced French Neo-Classical type to the exotic. Tickencote Church, Rut. (1792), incorporating a C12 chancel, is in a harsh Romanesque style, while his Sezincote House, Glos. (c.1805), is a country-house with exotic Hindoo details, the first example of that style in England.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
