Stained Glass in Wales | Gwydr Lliw yng Nghymru

Betton & Evans (1806-1861)

Stained glass studio formed as a partnership between John Betton of Shrewsbury (1765-1849), who began making stained glass in 1806, and his apprentice, David Evans, in 1815. Much of their work was restoration of medieval and Renaissance stained glass, for churches, cathedrals and private patrons. In some cases this 'restoration' amounted to the making of copies of medieval stained glass, and the discarding of the originals, such as at Winchester College Chapel (1822–3). John Betton retired in 1825, but Evans continued to work under the name of the firm, assisted by his sons Charles and William, primarily making new windows as demand for new stained glass grew.
