These glass panels look 17th century to me- and almost certainly not English. The allegorical figure on the left represents Faith or The Church. The panel on the left shows Joseph being grabbed at by Potiphar's wife.
Fragments of medieval glass. The roundel represents the interment of The Virgin
Medieval and Romanesque...my favourite historical period for art and architecture. Gothic is grand also (in many ways) but if there are two churches side by side, one Romanesque and one Gothic, you know where to look for me first.
Yes, I was hopeful, but not surprised. Henry left for the New World in 1639, so any gravestones for his parents or siblings would have crumbled away years ago. I like to think that they are there incognito.
I poke around a great deal in churchyards and I don't think I've ever found a gravestone earlier than the second half of the 17th century. Before 1660 (approx) if you could afford an inscribed gravestone or monument you got yourself buried inside the church. Only the poorer sort would have been buried outside and their grave markers (if any) would have been made of wood.
I'm thinking the buttress may be older than the tower. It seems greatly out of proportion.
These Kentish churches used to be on the front line of the endless medieval wars with France- and many of them were clearly built with defence in mind. Some of them have massive towers. My guess is that the tower here was once much bigger and has been rebuilt on a smaller scale- but with the buttress left in place.
