Samuel Sanders Teulon was a notable 19th century English architect.

Contents

Family

Teulon was born in Greenwich in south-east London, the son of a cabinet-maker from a French Huguenot family. His younger brother William Milford Teulon (1823-1900) also became an architect.

Career

Samuel attended the Royal Academy Schools, exhibited at the Academy in 1835, and commenced practice as an architect in 1838. He was a friend of George Gilbert Scott and became a member of the council of the Royal Institute of British Architects.

He particularly specialised in Victorian Gothic styles of churches, but also designed several country houses and even complete villages – indeed, his first large-scale commission came in 1848 from the 7th Duke of Bedford to design cottages for the Thorney estate.

Other clients included the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Duke of Marlborough, the 10th Duke of St. Albans and Prince Albert.

Buxton Memorial Fountain in Victoria Tower Gardens, London, designed by S.S. Teulon, celebrating the emancipation of slaves in the British Empire in 1834.
