Thomas Hudson Turner
Thomas Hudson Turner (1815–1852) archaeologist and architectural historian, was born in London of Northumbrian extraction. He was educated at Mr Law’s school in Chelsea and then apprenticed as a printer. His great interest in literature and antiquities led to his appointment in the Record office of the Tower of London.
He is best remembered for his work Some Account of Domestic Architecture in England: from the Conquest to the End of the Thirteenth Century published in Oxford/London in 1851.
He died shortly afterwards, aged 37, his health having suffered as a result of his arduous studies.
