BRIXHAM, Devon – St Peter the Fisherman. 

Window 1904

The Building News and Engineering Journal of 7 October 1904 carried the following report:

At St. Peter’s, the Brixham fishermen’s church, on Sunday, the Bishop of Crediton dedicated a stained-glass window to the memory of the Rev. Arthur Gordon Stallard, for twelve years curate-in-charge.  The stained-glass window has been placed in the south wall of the church near the font, under the direction of Mr. W. [sic] Prynne, of London.  Mr. W. Wyatt, of Brixham, assisted in the fixing of the glass.  It is a two-light window, and the scenes depicted are from our Lord’s life on earth when he says to his Disciples: “I will make ye fishers of men,” and on the other side is our Lord, with St. Andrew and St. Peter, in a boat in the storm on the lake.

The following week the journal issued additional information and a correction:

The stained-glass stall and memorial window, recently erected in St. Peter’s Church, Brixham, referred to in our last issue…was designed by Messrs. Percy Bacon and Brothers, of Newman-street, W., under the direction of Mr. G. H. Fellowes Prynne, of London, the consulting architect.
