Thomas F. Hunt (ca. 1790-1831) designed the mausoleum for Robert Burns at Dumfries, Scotland in 1815. He published extensively on English architecture and ten editions of this volume were published between 1827 and 1844. John G. Howard, owner of Colborne Lodge, Toronto, was the architect who supervised the building of pavilions in High Park, once his property. There was a Henry Northcote, civil engineer, in the Toronto area as well.
