Wyatt, Thomas Henry

Wyatt, Thomas Henry (1807–80). English architect, elder brother of Sir Matthew Digby Wyatt, related to the other architectural Wyatts. He trained in Philip Hardwick's office, and entered into partnership with David Brandon (1813–97) in 1838. Their masterpiece was the Church of Sts Mary and Nicholas, Wilton, Wilts. (1840–6), a convincing Italianate basilica with detached campanile, recognized at the time as a major exercise in the Rundbogenstil, even in the Viennese journal Allgemeine Bauzeitung (Universal Building Journal). It is a remarkable and beautiful building, and contains Antique black columns (c.2 BC) as well as examples of Cosmati work from Santa Maria Maggiore, Rome. They also designed the Churches of St Andrew, Bethnal Green, London (1841—in a cheaper, less successful Rundbogenstil), and St Mary, Atherstone, Warwickshire (1849—Gothic), and the City of London and Tower Hamlets Cemetery (consecrated 1841), complete with two Gothic chapels and a pretty Gothic gateway and lodge (all the buildings were demolished following damage in the 1939–45 war). On his own, Wyatt designed Orchardleigh Park, Somerset (1855–8), in a vaguely Jacobean style. With M. D. Wyatt, he designed the polychrome Rundbogenstil Garrison Church of St George, Grand Depot Road, Woolwich (1862–3—gutted in the 1939–45 war and only partially preserved).

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.
