1876

Three light window depicting the biblical stories of Abraham sacrificing Isaac (faith), the three Magi (hope) and the Good Samaritan (charity). Each scene is set in a landscape in front of trees, the star illuminating the central light above the magi. Three angels below shown with the words 'Faith', 'Hope' and 'Charity'.



Church of St Tysilio, Bryneglwys, Denbighshire
east wall of chancel

Perhaps by Burlison & Grylls. In 1876 the window would have been one of the earliest by the firm in Wales. The window in the south aisle chapel is more certainly by the firm.

Given in memory of John Parry Jones Parry and his wife Mary by their children in 1876. The window notes that they were buried at Llanbedrog.
