изображения приписывают James Butler, 3rd Earl of Ormonde (c.1400), но эта датировка слишком поздняя для изображенного костюма (пояс завязан узлом, длинные подолы, видны фестоны бригандины, подол сюрко разрезан спереди и отвернут в стороны)
Figures of (left) a Butler lord, and (right) his Fitzgerald wife, at Jerpoint Abbey , nr Thomastown, Co.Kilkenny.
These are dated c.1400, so must be the 3rd Earl of Ormonde and his 2nd wife (rather than Edmund le Botiller and Joan Fitzgerald).

более подходящая дата - ок. 1350
Of possible significance for the date of the cloister are a donation made by the second Earl of Ormond in 1364 and additional gifts made before 1400

в 1364 году жил Butler, James, Earl of Ormonde 2nd, b. 4 OCT 1331

в этом же аббатстве присутствуют еще два изображение рыцаря (нижние половины), очень похожее на наше, но немного более поздние (подолы короче), как раз больше подходят для датировки 1365
сохранилась верхняя часть от одного из этих изображений
Cistercian Abbey of Mellifont, County Louth, Ireland. Limestone fragment of a pier from the cloister arcade depicting a knight on one side and a lady on the other, c. 1390 - 1500. Jerpoint Abbey, County Kilkenny.
