Date of the "Washington" window[edit]

As MDCollins (talk · contribs) observed on my talkpage, this suggests the window dates to the 1440s. From what I know about heraldry and stained glass, that's just about reasonable (in fact, left to guess I would have said early 16th c.). This claim by a BBC journalist placing it in the 14th century is probably just a journalist not paying attention or not educated enough to translate "1440" into "15th century".

If I am wrong and it's indeed from the 14th century, I will sheepishly retract my remarks about uneducated journalists, but I will also be baffled at this very early example of heraldic stained glass. The 14th century date would make it very notable for its sheer age, never mind "Washington". --dab (𒁳) 08:28, 20 September 2011 (UTC)
