Stained Glass Makers of the Nineteenth Century

Over the nineteenth century Haward estimates that a staggering 1375 windows were installed across the county (both new and old glass) of which 1040 can be attributed with  twelve firms supplying over 70 percent of the windows installed. As can be seen in the following table four of the top twelve were local firms:

Firm No. of windows
Ward & Hughes (London) 119
Wm Wailes (Newcastle) 76
J & J King (Norwich 75
S C Yarrington (Norwich) 74
Heaton, Butler & Bayne (London) 68
J Powell & Sons (London) 68
Clayton & Bell (London) 61
J Hardman & co (Birmingham) 55
J Grant (Costessey) 44
Lavers Barraud & Westlake (London) 33
J Dixon (Norwich) 32
