Scune, Christopher (fl. 1505–21). English mason. He succeeded John Cole as Master-Mason at Louth, Lincs., from 1505, and worked on the steeple until it was almost finished (c.1512). Around 1508 he was appointed Master of the Masons at Durham Cathedral. From c.1514 he was at Ripon, Yorks., where he carried out all the new works at the nave of the Minster (now Cathedral), completed in 1520. He was presumably also responsible for the tower and tower-arch at Fountains Abbey, Yorks. (1494–1526).
