XIIIbisLight 8Henry Colt15301606  The shield in light 8 must Antedate 1450 or be a compound [1]
UnknownLight 9Wingfield >1464 McWm girlHe could perhaps be a brother of Mary Wingham around 1370-1430

[1] PME: I don’t understand the argument here.

JBE’s response: The ‘shield’ will mean the form of the McWm impalement only. JE does not remember – it will be in his analysis of the window in Ch7. I suspect she just preferenced an earlier form. (It could be cf ? Cavendish) What of this do I include??

JBE has used a 20 year generation. NJE has used 25years. Dates in bold are documented. The other dates are calculated or deduced (some being defined by the shields in the lights in the East Window).
