The kneeling knight in full armor. Above, him is the Drury Coat of Arms. This window dates to circa 1440

St. Peter and St. Paul Church, Bardwell, county Suffolk, was also listed in the Doomsday Book of 1086. Like so many of the churches mentioned in the Doomsday Book St. Peter and St. Paul Bardwell also represented a small community containing approximately 8 acres of land. A center for an agricultural society where the people have worshipped since the Norman invasion in 1066. The church of St. Peter and St. Paul is over six hundred years old having been built in the 13th century.
The Chancel dates to 1553, the north and south windows date to the 15th century, and the priest's doorway to the late 13th century. The Nave and Tower were built in the late 14th and early 15th century with the Nave being completed in 1421. The Tower was built at the same time as the Nave and is believed to have been paid for by Sir William de Bardwell.
Two eastern windows on the north side of the Nave contain two outstanding examples of medieval stained glass dating to approximately 1440. It is in one of these windows that we find the Drury Coat of Arms above a kneeling knight in full armor.

памятник приписывают Sir Roger Drury 1420, но в Suffolk, Rougham есть надгробная медная плита для него (без указания даты смерти) и его первой жены Margery с указанием даты ее смерти 1405. изображенный на этой плите костюм соответствует своему времени
здесь же указано, что на витраже изображен наш персонаж и его вторая жена Joan Pakenham (+1446)
но изображенный здесь костюм соответствует 1360-70 - кольчужный неполный рукав, бригандинный наплечник, наруч шинно-клепаный, наколенник без полунаголенника

The lofty narrow nave with its thin walls and matching two-light windows tell us that the building took place from the late 1300's to the early 1400's.


герб Drury похож, но отличается от изображенного на витраже
никакой связи семьи Drury с деревней Bardwell не найдено
этим поместьем в 14 веке почти неизменно владела семья de Bardwell
Roger Drury (+1420) и владелец Bardwell в это время William Bardwell (из младшей ветви семьи после смерти мужской линии в основной ветви ставший владельцем) были друзьями и их жены были из семьи Pakenham
