In March 1942 the Hobart Mercury included a photo of workmen loading the entire window frame onto a truck with the caption: “The stained glass windows of St. George’s Church of England are being removed to a safer place as a precaution against possible air raids” [11] A close inspection of the newspaper picture shows that there are ten panes deep and five wide in the frame of the window, which exactly matches the number of panes seen in the chancel window as at 2012. The Mercury, Hobart, Monday 2nd October 1871, page 2. “ST. GEORGE’S, BATTERY POINT. – A neat and un-ostentatious stained glass window manufactured by Messrs. Ferguson, Urie, and Lyon , of Melbourne, has just been placed in the chancel of St. George’s Church, Battery Point.

We must make special mention of the unceasing interest he took in the Public Library. In this respect we scarcely know where to look for his successor. But all the public institutions of the borough will miss his intelligent mind and marked business capacity, especially in the matters of finance. In the death of Mr. Charles C.

…In 1864 the liturgical west three light stained glass window of St George’s Anglican Church at Queenscliff was donated by Dr. David John Williams (1819-1902).
