Repton, George Stanley (1786–1858). English architect. The youngest son of Humphrey Repton, he was a pupil of Nash, and worked with the latter on numerous buildings. He also assisted his father, preparing architectural work for him. Having opened his own practice in 1820, he achieved success with a series of country-houses and extensions to existing buildings. He also designed churches, parsonages, and other works (e.g. the re-fronting of the Outer Court of Warden's Lodgings (1832–3), New Commoners (1837–9), and Headmaster's House (1839–41), Winchester College, Hants.).
