Sir Charles Barry (1795-1860), architect, the leading architect of the Victorian period, and designer of the Houses of Parliament. He designed Walton House, which was renamed Mount Felix, in Walton-on-Thames in 1835-9, for the fifth Earl of Tankerville. Mount Felix was considered to be one of Barry's finest works and inspired a change of taste for domestic architecture from Greek revival to Italianate. Mount Felix was the model for Osborne House, designed by Lewis Cubbitt for Prince Albert and Queen Victoria in 1849.
