about 1865

Three-light window with Nativity, Crucifixion with Mary and John, and the Resurrection. Extensive sacred heraldry in the tracery includes the elements of the Eucharist, the instruments of the Passion and wounded limbs, Agnus Dei, IHS monogram, dove of the Holy Spirit, angels holding the pelican in her piety and phoenix rising from the ashes, and the holy name of God. Family heraldry is included in the lower lights.

Church of St Pedrog, Llanbedrog, Gwynedd
east wall of the chancel

Dedication: 'To the glory of God and in memory of Lieut Genl Sir Love Parry Jones Parry K.H. of Madryn who died January 23rd 1853. This window has been placed here by his affectionate widow Dame Elizabeth Jones Parry'.

If this window was installed with the other chancel windows, of a similar style, this window probably dates from the restoration of 1865, which was funded by the donor of the window.
