bullet  General Notes:

Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin was a Londoner, born on 1st March 1812 at 39 Keppel Street, Russell Square to Augustus Charles Pugin,a French émigré, and his English wife, Catherine Welby.
His connection with Wexford came through the patronage of John, 16th Earl of Shrewsbury, Waterford and Wexford. Shrewsbury's wife was a native of Blackwater, Co. Wexford. Her uncle, John Hyacinth Talbot, was the first Catholic MP for County Wexford after Catholic Emancipation in 1829.
An only child, Pugin was a precocious genius who received most of his education in his father's school of architectural draftsmanship and by the age of fifteen had already designed Gothic furniture for Windsor Castle. His father worked in the office of John Nash, the great Regency architect and published with the help of his son, the earliest popular design-books for the Gothic Revival.
The young Pugin was as important an influence on the history of nineteenth century English architecture as Frank Lloyd Wright was to be on American architecture.
Pugin became an enthusiastic convert to Roman Catholicism at the age of twenty-three by which time he had lost his first wife, Ann Garnet, and both of his parents. He published extensively on his ideas for church architecture and gradually established himself as the greatest of the Victorian 'new men'.

He was an extraordinarily gifted artist and designed ceramics, stained glass, wallpapers, textiles, memorial brasses, church plate, etc. Probably the pinnacle of his design work was when he drew all the interior designs for the new Houses of Parliament.
His connection with Wexford came through the patronage of John, 16th Earl of Shrewsbury, Waterford and Wexford. Shrewsbury's wife was a native of Blackwater, Co. Wexford. Her uncle, John Hyacinth Talbot, was the first Catholic MP for County Wexford after Catholic Emancipation in 1829.
A rich man through his marriage into the Redmond family, John Hyacinth Talbot introduced Pugin to Wexford, where through the patronage of the Talbot and Redmond family connections, he was to gain most of his Irish commissions.
Pugin was to die through overwork at the age of forty in 1852, but has left a unique diocesan heritage to Ferns in his churches. His son and son-in-law, E.W. Pugin and George Ashlin, were to continue the building of Gothic Revival churches and monuments in Ireland.
