    William Butterfield (1814-1900) was a British architect known for the Gothic revival style he championed. He studied with E. L. Blackburne and set up his own practice in 1840. A member of the Cambridge Camden Society, later the Ecclesiastical Society, he contributed designs to their journal The Ecclesiologist. Most of his work was for church designs, apart from that for schools and colleges (Rugby School and Keble College Oxford), and the Winchester County Hospital. Perhaps his best-known building is the All Saints Church, Margaret Street, London (1849-1859). The Royal Institute of British Architects awarded the Gold Medal to Butterfield in 1884.
    Series II contains designs for ceremonial objects and church furnishings. Arranged alphabetical by location of church; all in Great Britain unless otherwise noted.
