Darbishire, Henry Astley

Darbishire, Henry Astley (1825–99). English architect mostly associated with philanthropic schemes, including the Gothic Columbia Market (1866) and the Gothic working-class housing-scheme at Columbia Square (1857–60), both in Bethnal Green, London, financed by Miss Angela Georgina (later Baroness) Burdett-Coutts (1814–1906), but both demolished. For the same client he designed the Picturesque Gothic Holly Village, Highgate, London (1865), a group of modest houses round a green, influenced no doubt by Nash's Blaise Hamlet, Som. Darbishire produced a standard design for five-storey apartment-blocks (the planning of which was derived from Henry Roberts's pioneering schemes of the 1850s) for the Peabody Trust (set up in 1862 to ameliorate the condition of the London poor). Many of these Italianate blocks survive in London.

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.
