A mistake?[edit]

I've removed this sentence, which already had a tag on it:

St Nicholas Abbey, Barbados (actually a plantation house), is regarded as the most famous example of Jacobean architecture in the Western hemisphere.[according to whom?]

As many of the English examples in the rest of the article are also in the Western hemisphere, it is hard to see how this unsourced claim could be true. BrainyBabe (talk) 10:48, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

Early Jacobean?[edit]

Are Renaissance buildings in Scotland counted as Jacobean? For example, Falkland Palace and Stirling Royal Palace were constructed in the style during the reign of James V. . . . dave souza, talk 13:20, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

No. James I/VI did not succeed James V. James V, who died in 1542 (I think; yes, I am on an encyclopaedia & can't be arsed to look it up) and had been king for yonks as he succeeded James IV (killed at Flodden Field, 1512) as a very young child, was succeeded by his wk-old daughter & only surviving legitmate child, Mary, Queen of Scots. She in turn was not forced to abdicate in favour of her 2 yo son, James VI, until 25 yrs later. Scots architecture was influenced by French architecture before James V....Auld Alliance=royal/noble marriage alliances with France, & he'd actually lived there a while as he courted his 1st wife, Madeleine of Valois, in person, & they had a French wedding & honeymoon....hence those Disneyland turret-toppers that popped up in Scotland. James Vs mother was Margaret Tudor, so there was a wee dram of Tudor influence in there as well. ScarletRibbons (talk) 04:54, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
