Edward Welby Pugin was the eldest son of architect Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin (1812-1852).
He was trained by his father, and took over the practice on his father's death when he was just 18. Like his father, he designed Roman Catholic churches in the Gothic style. Again like his father, he died young, at just 41.
