There has been some confusion over the attribution of this window, with some sources suggesting that it is the work of David Evans.

Commissioned by Archdeacon Chambres Jones of Bryn Eisteddfod, it reputedly includes his own portrait among the wise men, together with family and servants among their retinue. The view of the mountains is also that of Snowdonia from Bryn Eisteddfod.
