    As surveyor to the Bishop of London, the architect Samuel Pepys Cockerell (1753–1827) was responsible for the early development of the Bishop’s large Paddington Estate. Cockerell is perhaps best known for designing the onion-domed fantasy Sezincote House in Gloucestershire, which was commissioned by his older brother Sir Charles Cockerell, Surveyor to the East India Company.
