Countries: India

Builder. Born at Buxton, near Norwich. He travelled to India as a ship's carpenter, from which he was able to raise sufficient funds to start his own building firm in 1810. His two brothers: William and Lewis worked with him until 1827. Thomas's major achievement was a commission to develop the area around Belgrave Square and Pimlico. He was also responsible, in 1847, for the east front of Buckingham Palace which lasted until redesigned by Aston Webb in 1913. Died at Denbies House, near Dorking, Surrey.

2022: We learnt that there is another statue in Dorking, opposite the Dorking Halls.
