Ferrey, Benjamin

Ferrey, Benjamin (1810–80). English architect. He became a zealous pioneer of the Gothic Revival, much influenced by A. W. N. Pugin, having been articled to A. C. Pugin in 1825. His Church of St Stephen, Westminster (1847–50), was one of the most significant ecclesiastical buildings of the early Revival, its hard interior a model for later work, and was justly appreciated by The Ecclesiologist. Soon he was recognized as one of the ablest pioneers of scholarly Gothic Revival. St Michael's, Chetwynd, Salop. (1865–7), demonstrated his archaeological approach, drawing on elements derived from several historic buildings. He wrote Recollections of A. W. N. Pugin (1861). His son, Edmund Benjamin Ferrey (c.1845–1900), worked in his office from 1862 to 1869 before joining 'Great' Gilbert Scott and then establishing his own practice.

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.
