Anthony Salvin

Categories: Architecture

Architect. Born County Durham. Moved to London in 1821. Expert on medieval buildings, restoring many country houses and castles and so worked on only a few buildings in London. Wikipedia has an extensive list. Died at Hawksfold, Fernhurst, West Sussex, the house he designed for himself, now converted to flats.

We've found a few other architects who built houses for themselves, listed at Geoffrey Darke.

2024: Previously we had on this page a photo of an eccentric-looking gentleman found at The Royal Academy but Salvin's great-great-great grandson, William Hugh Salvin Rampen, informed us that it is misidentified. "I know that this mistake has originated with a collection of photos at the Portrait Gallery - where someone added names to photos long after the fact. But this one is definitely not correct."  The photo we now have on this page, of a staid, respectable Victorian gentleman is from Wikipedia.
