Kendall, Henry Edward

Kendall, Henry Edward (1776–1875). English architect. A pupil of Thomas Leverton and (probably) John Nash, he had a successful and varied practice. His Sessions-House and House of Correction, Spilsby, Lincs. (1824–6), is a handsome essay in the Greek Revival, but he was equally at home with Tudor Gothic, as at the Carr's Hospital, Sleaford, Lincs. (1830–46), and his winning (but unrealized) designs for Kensal Green Cemetery, London (1832). With his son, Henry Edward Kendall (1805–85— also a successful architect), he laid out the Esplanade and Tunnel, Kemp Town, Brighton, Sussex (1828–30). Among Kendall junior's works were Shuckburgh Hall, Warwicks. (1844), the Tudor Gothic ‘Pope's Villa’, Crossdeep, Twickenham, Mddx. (c.1845), the round-arched church of St John, Harrow Road, Kensal Green (1844—described by Pevsner as ‘atrocious’), and the splendid Egyptian Revival mausoleum of the 2nd Earl of Kilmorey (1787–1880) and his mistress, at Gordon House, Isleworth, Mddx., originally built in Brompton Cemetery, London, in 1854, then in 1862 moved to Woburn Park, Chertsey, and finally brought to Isleworth in 1870.

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.
