Sorry, no etymologies found.
He bequeathed his own name to the particular, evocative, Romantic British vistas of monastic settlements and crenellated castles we still describe as 'Puginesque.'
We left the high-road and soon were in the wood -- the dripping woodways, all strewn with ruinous gold, opening to right and left; and soon the roofs and towers of the big house -- Puginesque Gothic, I must tell you -- came in sight.
My Father did not, indeed, forbid me to enter the fine parish church of our village, or the stately Puginesque cathedral which Rome had just erected at its side, but I knew that I could not be seen at either service without his immediately knowing it, or without his being deeply wounded.
