The term "Jacobethan" [†] is compounded from Jacobean and Elizabethan. This style is definitely English in origin; however, nobody calls the English architecture of the reigns of Elizabeth I and James I, "Jacobethan." The actual "revival" is said to have been in England around 1830. Landscape Architect, Andrew Jackson Downing, said Jacobethan might be "adopted for country residences here in picturesque situations with quaint and happy effect." Both Tudor and Jacobethan have similar characteristic lines of English Architecture, and both enjoyed a brief revival between 1890-1940's.
