The North Wall
The North Wall First Window is a story window  given over to the Hungarian princess Elizabeth (A.D. 1231) later made a saint for her good works. Her life seems to have caught the imagination of Sir Edward Watkin.
The North Wall Second Window
The North Wall Second Window is a representation of Patience wearing the yoke of adversity. Here the figures of St Paul [Acts Chapter 21], St Antony of Egypt (A.D 356), Jesus at his scourging [St Mark Chapter 14, St John Chapter 19], St John exiled to Patmos, and St Stephen being stoned to death [Acts Chapter 7] are shown as examples.
The North Wall Third Window
The centre of North Wall Third Window depicts the Christian virtue of Fortitude or Courage. The figures of Daniel [Daniel Chapter 6], David confronting Goliath [1 Samuel Chapter 17], Joseph of Arimathea [St John Chapter 19], St Paul [Acts Chapter 27], and Peter and John [Acts Chapter 4] are used as examples of godly persons showing great courage.
The North Wall Fourth Window appears very dark by reference to the other windows in the building, possibly because it is so detailed. The lights show events in the life of Jacob, (Israel) the grandson of Abraham [Genesis Chapters 17 to 47]. The stained glass is almost certainly the work of Percy Bacon of London whose coat of arms appears in the lower right hand corner.
