An architectural historian and watercolour painter, John Louis Petit played a significant role in encouraging interest in the Gothic style and its revival. As an artist, he specialised in depicting historic buildings, particularly churches, in order to provide a record and illustrate his writings. He was born in Ashton-under-Lyne, Lancashire, on 31 May 1801, the eldest son of Harriet Petit (née Astley) and the Rev John Hayes Petit, perpetual curate of Shareshill, Staffordshire, and owner of the Ettingshall Estate, in the same county. His work is represented in the collections of the Samuel Johnson Birthplace Museum, Lichfield, and Staffordshire Museums and Art Gallery.
