An illustration of a window commemorating the Royalists who fought to protect Chester from the Parliamentarians, in a chapel built for William Barnston in St Chad's Church, Farndon. Among the illustrations of musketeers, pikemen and musicians are fiver portraits: standing by a tent is Sir Francis Gammul (1606-1654), former major of Chester; flag-bearer Ensign Hugh [?] Berington; and along the top are Sir Richard Grosvenor (c.1604-65), Sir William Mainwaring (c.1615-44), and William Barnston (1592-1665), sponsor of the window. A fourth portrait on the top row, where the title title is here, has been destroyed and forgotten. From George Ormerod's 'History of the County Palatine and City of Chester'. Hugh Cholmondeley (1773-1815), Dean of Chester from 1806 until his death, paid for the restoration of the window.
