Scenes from the Life of Christ with Donors

about 1852
Series of tall lancets, mostly in pairs. The paint loss from the windows makes the subjects difficult to decipher. They include the miraculous draught of fishes, Christ with Peter and John, perhaps Christ with the woman at the well or at the wedding in Cana. The donors, Viscount Feilding and his wife Louisa, are shown kneeling (with Feilding holding a model of the church) and performing acts of mercy.

The designs of the windows were initially entrusted to A. Lusson, but the commission passed to John Hardman by March 1852. They were made later that year or possibly in 1853.
