  1. *Insertion=earlier deathdate.
  2. Polsue, published in 1867 (J Polsue, A Complete Parochial History of the County of Cornwall, vol I p 72. William Lake, Truro, ), says that all the windows, excepting those of the south front, are of ornamented and stained glass. This implies that stained glass was inserted in North aisle north by then, so perhaps this window was originally a memorial to Louisa Susan Anne Moore only, who died in , and then the dedication to her brother Hugh Granville Fortescue, who died in , was added later. On the other hand, neither North aisle west nor North aisle east could have been inserted in its present form by then.
