Sir Charles Robert Cockerell was an English architect and writer active in the UK in the early- to mid-19th century. He was the son of surveyor, Samuel Pepys Cockerell (born 1754, died 1827) in whose architectural practice he first trained. Cockerell travelled extensively and his works are often in a unique mix of baroque, English Renaissance, Greek Revival and neo-classcial styles.
