This is something that's on a lot of stuff from our time period. I can't come up with an "architect" in particular, but the practice dates back quite a ways. (Early swords, combs, statuary, etc.)
Look up "____ me fecit."
I found this one that's about something architectural:
But I suspect that your prof was just focused on that architect. :)

You are correct. That was what I meant to say about Gerald.
I am looking for the original architect's name so when I talk about Gerald's announcements, I can "document" it.

I don't remember Gerald using the architect's name. I thought he usually named the C&I artist.
"Robert of Coldcastle" came up a lot :).
Let me check some of my books on middle ages stone masons and architects
when I get home.
Think I have seen that stone work.
