Stained Glass of Buckinghamshire Churches


Windows by Frederick Preedy - Maker

Frederick Preedy (2 June 1820 - 28 March 1898) was an architect and glass painter in England. Preedy was born in Offenham near Evesham in Worcestershire and died at his son's home in Croydon. During his early life his family moved from Offenham to nearby Fladbury. Following his death a memorial was erected to him in the church of St John the Baptist, Fladbury, Worcestershire. He was buried at Foxham in Wiltshire. Career He trained as an architect in Worcester with Harvey Eginton. Following the early death of Eginton in 1849 he set up his own architectural practice in Worcester. In 1860 he moved his business to London. For his early churches he commissioned stained glass windows from George Rogers in Worcester, but after around 1853 began to make his own glass. He is thought to be the only architect of his time who also both designed and made his stained glass windows. His legacy includes windows in Worcester Cathedral, Gloucester Cathedral, Lincoln Cathedral and Ely Cathedral, and numerous parish churches, particularly in Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Norfolk.
