Windows

I was surprised to see the church open this morning, so took the opportunity to look for the Thomas Norfolk JACKSON window (Thursday’s post). I was kindly offered the catalog but there is so much information about each window I missed Thomas on the first read through. I noticed, though, that Reverend WOODD’s widow and sister, Eleanor, had dedicated three windows to his memory in 1899: and “To the glory of God and in honour of His holy Apostle St. Paul and of the Northumbrian SS. Aidan & Oswald.”

These windows are in the chancel. Reverend Thomas’ window is just around the corner in the south transept. I will have to return with a tripod one day to get a good photograph of the complete window but here is a detail, and the dedication beneath.

Note: If you followed the link to Rev. Basil’s sister on FST you may have noticed her death is given as 25 November 1888 – the same day as husband Welbury James MITTON. There is a GRO Death registration for Welbury in that year, age 50 in Hampstead, but not for Eleanor. I think she died in Worcestershire in 1915, aged 74. This tallies with birth sources and guarantees her availability to dedicate the windows with Esther in 1899.
