Grantley Memorial Window

Thomas Willement (1786-1871)


North transept, Ripon Cathedral, N. Yorkshire

Stained glass showing the genealogy of the Norton family, which goes back as far as Edward III, through one of his sons, John of Gaunt.

This is one of Willement's heraldic designs, the sort of window in which he excelled. Indeed, Peter Leach and Nikolaus Pevsner describe it as "excellent" (663).
