      Thomas Rickman 1776 - 1841
      Practised medicine 1801-3, in business 1803-8, clerk in an insurance broker's
      1808-18. Began to study churches in 1809 and is said to have examined 3000.
      In 1812 he began to write on Gothic architecture and in 1817 set up as an
      architect in Liverpool. Helped with Parker's Glossary. The Ecclesiologists
      admired him as a pioneer, but could not treat him very seriously as a church
      architect because he was a Quaker.

      He is most famous for devising the names of periods of english architecture
      in 1819, Saxon, Norman, Early English, Decorated and Perpendicular.

      Hope that helps.........

      Best wishes
