St Peter, St John, St James the Greater and St Andrew, probably by Alexander Gibbs (see Eberhard). These were all installed in in the north aisle of St Peter's, Bournemouth in 1859, except for St Peter, installed in 1860. They are the westernmost of twelve apostle windows in the lancets along this aisle, all in memory of people who had died recently. St Peter, leading the way, is a memorial window for Major General Jones. And, as with the following eight of this impressive series, each apostle bears a scroll with a text from the Apostle's Creed. St Peter's scroll starts off the creed with its opening words: "I believe in God the Father Almighty." In his other hand, he holds the key to heaven. As the westernmost four windows, they would be seen first by members of the congregation, on entering the church at the west.
