Augustus Charles Pugin (1769–1832) was the father of the more well known A. W. N. Pugin. Born in France, little is known of his early life but he probably came to England around 1792 where he entered the Royal Academy Schools and then worked as a draughtsman for John Nash, at that time based in Wales. In 1796, Pugin moved to London with Nash. He became known as an expert on Gothic architecture and was one of the best teachers of architectural drawing of his day.
