Garner, Thomas

Garner, Thomas (1839–1906). English Gothic Revival architect. He was a pupil of the elder Scott. In partnership (1869–98) with G. F. Bodley, he made a major contribution to the work of the firm, notably at St Augustine, Pendlebury, Manchester (1870–4), and the exquisite Holy Angels, Hoar Cross, Staffs. (1872–6). After the partnership was dissolved, Garner carried out works at Yarnton Manor, Oxon., and Moreton House, Hampstead, among other commissions. Bentley considered him a designer of genius, and there is certainly a warmth in the buildings he erected in collaboration with Bodley that is lacking when the latter worked on his own. He wrote The Domestic Architecture of England during the Tudor Period (1908–11), with Arthur James Stratton (1872–1955). Garner (who became an RC) designed the chancel at Downside Abbey, Som. (1901–5), as fine a work of liturgiological and ecclesiological scholarship as may be found in England.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles 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, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use 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:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most 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.
