The English architect Ernest A. Coxhead (1863-1933) working with his brother Almeric (1861-1928) designed the Church of the Ascension in Sierra Madre, CA, to hold 170 parishioners. According to the American Architect and Building News of 12/29/1888, "The cost of this little church which seats about 170 persons was $4,500. It is built of roughly broken granite boulders." (See "Church of the Ascension, Sierra Madre, Cal., Mr. E.A. Coxhead, Architect, Los Angeles, Cal.," American Architect and Building News, vol XXIV, no. 679, 12/29/1888, p. 300.)
