John Finch and Secretary Windebank

Deeply embroiled in the political machinations of the pre war period. Lord Finch of Fordwick and Francis Windebank are lampooned in this 1642 engraving by George Glover. Both eventually escaped to the continent, though at this point it seems just Finch had flown. Finch wears a well cut doublet with a plain linen band and three layer cuffs. Windebank in doublet and cloak (you can just see the hanging collar and one edge) with a similar band and closely darted cuffs.  © Trustees of the British Museum
