Jean Carré arrives in London from Antwerp. He builds a glass furnace at Crutched Friars near the Tower of London, where he produces fine crystal drinking glasses. Until now, no one in England knew how to do this.
Carré also builds furnaces in the Weald near the Surrey-Sussex border. Here he revives the art of making glass windows. Skilled Protestant glass-makers come to work for him from Normandy, Lorraine and Flanders.
