Notes
  1. Marriage of dedicatee to Beatrice Dumergue, second daughter of Revd WS Dumergue, vicar of Fareham, and sister of donor of Islington, St Mary, [unknown location], , Morning Post p 8.
  2. Death of dedicatee, Western Times p 6, Hastings and St Leonards Observer p 11.
  3. Insertion at the east end of the south chancel aisle, just above the “priest’s door”, Devon and Exeter Gazette p 4, Devon and Exeter Gazette p 11, Western Times p 10. Unveiled by Revd JC [sic] Procter, vicar of St Mary, Islington, brother-in-law of dedicatee of this window, who was to become dedicatee of Islington, St Mary, [unknown location].
  4. Whole window. The subject of the first and second lights, given in the inscription at the bottom of the lights, is Barnabas [, (which is, being interpreted,] the Son of Consolation [) a Levite, and of the country of Cyprus, having land, sold it, and ] brought the money, and laid it at the apostles’ feet. (Acts 4:36–37). The subject of the third and fourth lights is Barnabas took Saul, and brought him to the apostles (Acts 9:27). In each scene Barnabas’ head appears to be a photographic likeness, presumably of the dedicatee.
  5. Same maker as Islington, St Mary, [unknown location]. The donor of the Islington window was Mrs Emily Procter, sister-in-law of dedicatee of this window, who chose Fouracre to make it because she because she liked this window Western Morning News p 4. Suggests incorrectly that the dedicatee of this window was Mrs Beatrice Forrester (sister of Emily Procter), rather than her husband.
  6. Death of Mrs Beatrice Forrester, widow of dedicatee, , Hastings and St Leonards Observer p 3.
