Stained Glass of Buckinghamshire Churches


Windows by H W Lonsdale - Maker

Horatio Walter Lonsdale (1844-1919) was born in Mexico of British parents, and came to England in 1851 with his elder brother and widowed mother. He completed his education at the Royal Academy Schools, where he studied archtecture. He entered the office of William Burges in the late 1860s, staying with him as an assistant through the 1870s during his most prolific period: "Lonsdale was employed in drawing small sketches for stained glass from Burges's instructions. These were then turned into cartoons, probably by Weekes. Then the windows were manufactured by Saunders and Co." (Victorian Web)
