Born at Cardigan. He was apprenticed to Sir Robert Taylor and afterwards settled near Carmarthen. He was persuaded by a number of friends to start in business as an architect; this he did, becoming well-known almost at once. He designed the Cardiganshire county gaol at Cardigan, and the west front and the chapterhouse in St. Davids cathedral. He moved to London and became world-famous for his work on Regent's Park and the terraces adjoining it, Regent Street, and the Marble Arch.
