William Butterfield (1814-1900) was one of the great Gothic revivalist architects, and although born into a non-conformist family became associated with the High Church Oxford Movement. While not formally a designer of stained glass window he strongly influenced the work of the many firms that made windows under his direction. Opposite is a typical example of the style of window produced in the 1860s in collaboration with Alexander Gibbs.
