Henry de Estria (Henry of Eastry)
ecclesiastic and architect; d. 1331.
Henry was elected prior of the cathedral of Canterbury, England, in 1285. According to the Obituary of Canterbury (Anglia Sacra, Vol. I., p. 141) "he decorated the choir of the church with most beautiful stonework delicately carved." This work is mentioned more specifically in his Register. These notices refer undoubtedly to the fine enclosure of the choir, much of which remains. The north doorway is still perfect.
