Window of the sheffield worthies
The stained glass window of the 'Six Sheffield Worthies' by Christopher Webb was originally installed in the north wall of the original St George's Chapel but was moved to its current location in the 1960s. It depicts soldiers and benefactors of the church throughout the centuries.
Waltheof was the last Saxon Lord of the Manor of Hallamshire, an ancient boundary including modern-day Sheffield and parts of Rotherham and north Derbyshire.
William de Lovetot was a Norman Lord of the Manor who built the first Parish Church on this site around 1101, Sheffield's motte and bailey castle and a hospital for the poor at Spital Hill.
Gerard de Furnivall inherited the Lordship through marriage to Maud de Lovetot; he fought and died on the Crusades.
Thomas Nevil gained the Lordship through marriage into the de Furnival family and established Sheffield as a market town by Royal Charter in 1386.
John Talbot, 1st Lord of Shrewsbury gained the Lordship of the Manor through marriage with Maud Nevil, Thomas' daughter. He was a famous soldier - the Talbot of Shakespeare's 'Henry IV Part I' - and contributed towards the building of the 15th century church. He was the first of the Shrewsbury Earls whose association with Sheffield was to last for two hundred years.
Colonel Sir John Bright was the Parliamentarian Governor of Sheffield Castle after its surrender in the Civil War in 1644. He later served under Charles II after the Restoration and became one of the Capital Burgesses of Sheffield.
The Tudor screen beneath and to the right of the Window originally separated the Shrewsbury Chapel from the Lady Chapel and on one of its panels can be seen some simple carvings of the Talbot dog.
