TheStained Glass in St Mary, Slaugham, West Sussex - 9th June 2004
All of the glass in Slaugham church is mostly from the latter half of the 19th century and are in a good state of preservation. I managed to get into a bit of a muddle with my photography and managed to miss at least one window out, hopefully I have identified the ones I did capture correctly!
|This window is in the north wall nearest the tower and carries the inscription "In the Reverence of God, and in loving memory of Warden Sergison, Patron of this parish, and Michael Delaval, his son, who in the year 1888 both entered into their rest. Emilia, his wife, dedicates this window".|
This window, above the roll of honour, is dedicated thus: "In Memoriam Reginald Thomas Joy Haweis, born March 19. Died March 26, 1869. Erected by M.P. 1880."
This window depicting the nativity has an overhead projector screen mounted in front of it, however by taking a steeply angled photograph and then applying electronic perspective correction it has magically vanished with the wonders of modern technology!
It carries the a banner inscribed with the text "Glory to God in the Highest and on Earth Peace".
Its dedication reads (obscured by the window sill in my photo): "To the glory of God and in loving memory Edward Devas, Evelyn Fanny of Edward and Fanny Biggs, 1880".
There is a window above the Jane Covert monument which is not photographed. Its dedication reads: "In loving memory of Mary, wife of J. O. W. Haweis, Rector, her Daughters, Mary Paynter and Margaret Haweis, and their Father, present this window".
The eastern window above the altar has few clues to its origins. The inscription reads: "A gift of I.M.N. * T.A.G. * W.P. * R&M.L. * E.S.A. * & G.H/ * 1866". This is probably the oldest glass in the church.
Apologies for the blurred photograph - it was enlarged from the view of the nave as I omitted to take a photograph of this window!
|This is the window in the eastern wall of the Covert Chapel. It contains three scenes with the following inscriptions, "Suffer the little children to come unto me", "I am the good shepherd", "Jesus called all little children unto him" and finally underneath in the central lancet, "They follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth They are without fault before the Throne of God."|
The window in the south wall of the Covert chapel carries the dedication: "To the Glory of God and in loving memory of J. Manship Norman, MA, JP, DL. Born Sept 23rd 1799. Died Jan 10th 1888. Erected by his nephews Oswald and Reginald Norman."
|Just to the left of the door is this window which carries the inscription: "Lord now letteth thou thy servant depart in peace according to thy word, for mine eyes have seen thy salvation. These words are here written in loving remebrance of the Rev. John Oliver Willyams Haweis, MA, Prebendary at Chichester and Rector of Slaugham, who after long expectation entered into his rest May 11 1891 and to whose memory his daughters surviving dedicate this window."|
This window is at the western end of the south wall and carries the inscription "To the Glory of God and in loving memory of John Lister, William Edward Lister and Charlotte Elizabeth Lister. This window is placed by E.L., E.M. and J.J.L. Easter Day 1892".
|This small window is in the western end of the south aisle underneath a much higher window (not photographed, but visible on the picture of the south aisle on the Slaugham main page). It is not dedicated, and depicts Richard of Chichester.|
