Charles Edwin Ponting, F.S.A., (1850–1932) was a Gothic Revival architect who practised in Marlborough, Wiltshire.

Career[edit]

Ponting began his architectural career in 1864 in the office of the architect Samuel Overton.[1] He was agent for Meux brewing family's estate from 1870 until 1888.[1] After Admiral Hedworth Meux inherited Theobalds House in Hertfordshire in 1910, Ponting enlarged the house for him.

In 1883 the Diocese of Salisbury appointed Ponting Surveyor of Ecclesiastical Dilapidations for the Archdeaconry of Wiltshire.[1] Part of the Diocese of Bristol was added to his responsibilities in 1887 and the Diocese of Salisbury added the Archdeaconry of Dorset to his duties in 1892.[1] He resigned from his post with the Bristol Diocese in 1915 and from that with the Salisbury Diocese in 1923.[1]

Family[edit]

Ponting married Overton's daughter Martha Margaretta in 1872.[1] She died in 1873 at the age of 20 while giving birth to their twin daughters Martha and Mary.[1] Ponting never remarried, and the twins remained unmarried and lived with him until his death.[1]
