Sulgrave Manor offers history perspective -and not just on Washington`s birthday

SULGRAVE, United Kingdom - The parish church of St. James the Less in Sulgrave dates from the 13th century, and has been designated by English Heritage as a Grade II listed building. The church is located five minutes from Sulgrave Manor. The west door is Saxon-era, but the major attraction for most visitors is the Washington family pew in the south aisle. Lawrence Washington and his second wife Amy are buried before the pew, and the site is marked with a memorial brass. The window overlooking the pew is set with four family crests bearing the Washington coat of arms at different periods. Just inside the south door of the church is a large iron-bound chest which belonged to Lawrence Washington. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Brian Stives)
