William Peckitt (bap.1731-95) was a York based glass painter, who enjoyed a considerable reputation during his lifetime working in a number of  the great cathedrals and having a number of influential patrons. It was largely thanks to his efforts that glass painting was in greater demand when he died, than when he took up the art half a century earlier.
