Thomas Archer


His churches include St John's, Smith Square, Westminster, badly damaged in World War II, St. Paul's, Deptford and St Philip, Birmingham, now Birmingham Cathedral. Archer's secular works included Roehampton House in Surrey, Welford Park in Berkshire, and the Cascade House and the west front and broadly bowed pilastered north front at Chatsworth House. Between 1709-1711 Archer designed a Baroque Garden pavilion for Henry Grey, 1st Duke of Kent at Wrest Park, Silsoe, Bedfordshire. After 1712 Archer designed Hurstbourne Priors in Hampshire for John Wallop (later Earl of Portsmouth). He remodelled St Mary's Church at Hale, Hampshire which also contains Archer Memorial designed by himself and carved by Sir Henry Cheere.

He was a founding governor of the Foundling Hospital in London in 1739, but was not involved in the construction of the resulting building, completed circa 1750. The architect for that project was a Mr. Theodore Jacobsen.
