Notes
  1. Maker’s mark.
  2. Insertion=very similar to St Michael Penkevil, North transept east.
  3. Death of donor, Illustrated London News p 17.
  4. J Polsue, A Complete Parochial History of the County of Cornwall, vol Ⅱ p 388. William Lake, Truro, - boldly designed.
  5. Kelly’s Directory p 783 implies that dedicatee was probably George Henry Boscawen, 2nd Earl of Falmouth and 5th Viscount Falmouth, the son of the donor, died , the same dedicatee as Chancel east, in which case this window would have the same donor, dedicatee and maker as St Michael Penkevil, North transept east.
