James Park Harrison (1817-1901) was a Victorian architect, born in Bloomsbury.  He studied at Oxford and then Lincoln's Inn. He was associated with the Oxford Movement and with John Keble (17921866); the Ecclesiological Society approved of him.  By 1851, living near Dorking, he had largely given up architecture, preferring to call himself an annuitant and MA of Oxford.  For the remainder of his life he devoted himself to archaeological and ethnographic studies of the most varied kinds.  As a widower he lived in a succession of lodgings until taken in by his son, a retired naval officer, in Sydenham, where he is to be found in 1901.
