LAMB, EDWARD BUCKTON (1806–1869), architect, born in 1806, had a large practice as an architect in the modern Gothic style. From 1824 he exhibited at the Royal Academy; showing in 1869 a design for the Smithfield Martyrs' Memorial Church in St. John Street, Clerkenwell. Some of his designs were published in lithography. Lamb published in 1830 ‘Etchings of Gothic Ornament,’ in four parts, and in 1846 ‘Studies of Ancient Domestic Architecture, principally selected from Original Drawings in the Collection of Sir W. Burrell.’ He died at his residence in Hinde Street, Manchester Square, on 30 Aug. 1869.
