The Church of St. Mary, Lydiard Tregoze, Swindon, Wiltshire

Below is the east window of St. Mary's Church in Battersea, London.
Photograph used by kind permission of the vicar Canon Simon Butler

We are very grateful to St.  Mary's in Battersea to be able to display their photograph here and hope you too will appreciate seeing it.  St. Mary's, Battersea, is a Grade I listed building and English Heritage describes this window as:  "East window 1631 of stained and enamelled glass attributed to Bernard van Linge, of exceptional quality, transferred in entirety from the older church."  (source: Historic England website)  If you have appreciated seeing this photograph, perhaps you might consider giving a donation to St. Mary's Battersea - see their own website at:  www.stmarysbattersea.org.uk.

The original church, located next to the St. John Manor House at Battersea (now under what was once Ranks Mill), was replaced in 1775 by the present church.

The window depicts Margaret Beauchamp (left) alongside King Henry VII (centre) and Queen Elizabeth I (right).*  Margaret Beauchamp married Oliver St. John.

this information was given to us by a 14th generation descendant of Margaret who contacted us after we asked for help in locating this window.  Thank you
