Lugt 14236. Edmund Turrell was active from 1814 (cited in Charles Wild's advertisement for his volume on Lincoln Cathedral, q.v.), but the fact that his name appears on works as late as 1848 suggests that there may have been a father and son of the same name active over this period. 'The 'Society of Engineers' is probably the Smeatonian Society of Engineers so named from 1830 having previously be known as the Society of Civil Engineers founded by Smeaton and others in 1771. The current 'Society of Engineers' which describes itself as the "third oldest engineering body in the UK" was set up only in 1854.
