Herbert, Henry, 9th Earl of Pembroke

Herbert, Henry, 9th Earl of Pembroke (c.1693–1751). Owner of Wilton House, Wilts., he studied at Christ Church College, Oxford, in the time of Aldrich, and was active in promoting the Palladianism that Inigo Jones had introduced, and which was being revived in Herbert's lifetime under the aegis of Burlington. He became an important amateur, probably more faithful to Palladian principles than either Burlington or Kent. He and Roger Morris appear to have designed the elegant bridge at Wilton (1736–7), Marble Hill, Twickenham (1724–9), White Lodge, Richmond New Park (1727–8), and other works. Campbell also worked for or with Herbert, notably in connection with the latter's house in Whitehall, London (1724), and, it seems, Marble Hill. It is probable that Herbert, lacking practical architectural skills, worked with Morris as his amanuensis.

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.
