Churchill Memorial (North) Window, 1900

Extract culled by Ruth Johnson from the Deddington Parish and Deanery Magazines, 1879–1930, edited by the then Vicar, the Revd Thomas Boniface until his retirement in 1924.

'A beautiful stained-glass window has recently been put in the north aisle by Mr John Churchill of Bath in memory of his parents, who formerly lived in Deddington and were worshippers at the church, sitting near to where the window is erected.

The subject of the window is charity (Mr and Mrs Churchill being both charitable). The central figure represents charity and the figures on either side, St Martin, Bishop of Tours, with the beggar at his feet, and St Elizabeth of Hungary giving alms. The window was designed by Mr C E Kempe, the same artist who designed the large east window. (A faculty has been granted by the Chancellor of the Diocese for the erection of this stained glass window.)'
