A. An angel holds a scroll on which is written .

2a. A male figure in armour holding a staff with a banner on which is written Victory.

2b. A female figure holding a staff with a banner on which is written Peace good will toward men (Luke 2:14).

1a. The arms of St Aubyn of Clowance, with an annulet for difference, above the motto of St Aubyn, In se teres (Exact in himself). The arms of St Aubyn of Clowance are ermine on a cross gules five bezants (Burke, Bernard, The General Armory of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, p 886. , London, Harrison & Sons, Vivian, The Visitations of Cornwall , , and , p 437, ). The annulet is a mark of cadency, denoting that Piers Stewart St Aubyn was the fifth son (Vivian , op cit, p 442) of Sir John St Aubyn, 2nd Baronet (who became 1st Baron St Levan) and younger brother of Brig Gen Lord St Levan, 2nd Baron St Levan, the probable donor of the window.

1b. The arms and motto of St Aubyn of Clowance, as in 1a, but with a crescent instead of an annulet for difference. The crescent is a mark of cadency, denoting that Edward Stuart St Aubyn was the second son (Vivian, , op cit, p 442) of Sir John St Aubyn, 2nd Baronet (who became 1st Baron St Levan) and younger brother of Brig Gen Lord St Levan, 2nd Baron St Levan, the probable donor of the window.
