 Philip Hardwick (1792-1870)
Philip Hardwick (1792-1870) was the only son of Thomas to follow his footsteps in architecture.
The two families had often lived closely together in nearby streets in the area of Holborn, and marrying into another family of architects was one of the traditions of the London architectural profession.
His son Philip Charles more or less took over his father's office, so as the architectural historian H.R Hitchcock points out, "Hardwick must stand for father and son." The family resided at 60 Russell Square when the 1851 census was taken and then at Cavendish Square in 1861.
