Elizabeth Dawson gave this window in 1874 in memory of two of her four children. Elizabeth Dawson was the daughter of Robert Evans who was a Church Warden when this Church was built in 1847/8. Elizabeth married Richard Goodwin Dawson in 1841 in the old Church; he is described as a land agent and as the son of a farmer from the Prestatyn district.

According to Malcombe Seaborne the window is signed 'H. Hughes, London 1874'.
