St. George’s Chapel (Berkshire). Here in this inspiring cathedral-like
Garter Chapel can be seen the Knights of the Garter plates of Sir Richard
Wingfield of Kimbolton Castle (d. 1525, grandfather of Captain Edward-Maria
Wingfield, the founding father with Bartholomew Gosnold of Jamestown,
Virginia in 1607), installed 1523 [north side, row 3, right], and that of
his nephew, Sir Anthony Wingfield of Letheringham (d. 1552), Comptroller
& Captain of the Guard for King Henry VIII and King Edward IV, installed
1541 (fifth from the altar, row 4, right, south side). Their arms are in the
roof, but no Wingfield has ever managed to see them!
