I don't have time to look through it all, but this is a great resource:

The search function should help you find something applicable, as its mostly 16th century.
Slowly realizing just how far is still to go.

There are extracts from the Beauchamp Pageant in most books about the 15thC. They should be showing English armour (as it's for an English patron).

Hi Will,

Speak to Mike in the Levy - he's been collecting info on them. There is one in the V&A I have some photos of... somewhere. If I find them I'll email them to you.
