Ricardus Pylle, glasier (vide account of William Thompson, 12 S. ix. 164, 165). [1510.] William Hutchinson, working at the Minster. A Gregory Hutchinson, son of John Hutchinson, was free in 1516. [1510.] Richard Awger, working at the Minster (vide Fabric Rolls). Probably brother of the William Awger free in 1498. 1511. Johannes Fysshe, glasier. 1513. Walterus Burnet, glasier. His son, Thomas Burnet, barbour and wexchandler, was free of the city in 1540. 1516. Willelmus Wylton, glasier. 1516. Gregorius Hutchinson, glasier, fil. Johannis Hutchinson. In 1510 a William Hutchin- son was working at the Minster. 1517. Ambrosius Dunwich, glasier. He was one of William Thompson's workmen. His master, at his death in 1539, bequeathed him " one warke borde, a pare of moldes and a pare of sheres, and a pare of clawmes " (ride account of William Thompson, 12 S. ix. 164, 165). 1520. Thomas Fourneys, glasyer. Probably a descendant of Robertus Fournays, glacier, free in 1412. Thomas Fourneys's son William was free of the city as a glass-painter in 1551. In 1537 Thomas Fourneys was paid 13s. 4rf. for work, evidently mending, about the wirdows of St. Saviour's Church. 1524. Johannes Hawmond, glasyer. 1526. Johannes Dowthuayte, glasier. 1529. Willelmus Bogg, glasyer, fil. Roberti Bogg, glasyer. Free by patrimony. His father, Robert, was free in 1504. 1533. Laurence Spencer, glasyer. One of the workmen of William Thompson (free 1496 ; d. 1539), to whom Thompson bequeathed " a wark- borde, a pare of moldes, a pare of sheres, and a pare of clawmes " (ride 12 S. ix. 164). 1534. Ed. Walkynton, glasyer. [15.9.1 Thomas Lelemen. [ 15 3 J. ] Thomas NichoLson. Two of the workmen of William Thompson (free 1496, d. 1539). For his bequests of tools, ice., to them, see 12 S. ix. 164. 1540. Johannes Almayn, glasyer. The name suggests a foreign derivation, the name " Alle- magne " being applied to Flanders and the southern parts of Germany, so that, in view of the date, this artist was very probably a foreign re- fugee. If so, he is the first example of an artist from abroad working at York. Hitherto the names show that with few exceptions the York artists were all natives of the city and vicinity. John Almayn executed work for the Dean and Chapter at Pudsey Burton in 1530 (vide Rolls of of the Chamberlains of the Minster). His son, Thomas, was free of the city in 1555. 1551. Johannes Plewright, glasyer. 1551. Willelmus Fornes, glasyer, fil. Thomae Forn>s de Ebor, glasyer. Free of the city by patrimony. His father was free in 1520, and Robert Fournays, evidently an ancestor, in 1412. 1555. Thomas Alman, glaysyer, til. Johannis Alman (free 1540) de Ebor, glaysyer. (NOTE. It is doubtful whether those described as " glasiers " after this date were glass-painters, I therefore, from now on, only the names of those j who are definitely known to have been painters of I glass have been included.) 1578. Nicholaus Giles, glasyer, fil. Henrici

Giles, trellessmaker (vide 12 S. ix. 205).

1586-7. Barnard Dinnichoff, glasier. H& painted the beautiful enamelled heraldic glass in the dining room of Gilling Castle, with the arms of the Fairfax and Constable families, which is signed a*d dated " Bernard Dininchhoff fecit 1585." Beyond this, nothing more is known of this artist or of his work. 1634. Edmundus Gyles, glasier, fil. Nicholai Gyles, glasier (vide 12 S. ix. 205). [b. 1645.] Henry Gyles (d. 1709) (vide 12 S. ix. 245, 268). 1740. Andrew Rowell, plumber and glazier. It is possible be was a relative of " one Rowell, a plumber at Reading," who, according to Walpole^ in his ' Anecdotes ' (Murray's ed., p. 120), " did some things particularly for the late Henry, Earl of Pembroke, but Rowell's colours soon vanished. At last he found out a very durable and beautiful red, but he died in a year or two and the secret with him." Dallaway (whose statements must be received with caution) says, " John Rowell, of High Wycombe, who died in 1756, practised this art in the style of Price. His principal work was seven windows for the church of Hambledon, Bucks, but he succeeded most in mosaics and heraldic devices " (' Obs. on Eng. Archit.,' p. 280). Redgrave, in his ' Diet, of Artists of the English School '( 1874), confuses the above two personages (if indeed they were two distinct individuals, which is questionable) into one. [b. 1 743.] Mrs. Peckitt (Mary Mitley), daughter of Charles Mitley (d. 1758), a statuary, carver and gilder. Married William Peckitt April 3, 17(i3, and helped him in his glass-painting work (iide letter of Miss Peckitt to the 6 'er t.'sMag., May, 1817). After the death of her husband in 1795, Mrs. Peckitt erected a window to his memory in St.. Martin-cum-Gregory Church, which, as the in- scription upon it states, " was designed and executed by his afflicted widow, 1796." A tablet at the side of the window records her death, Jan. 11, 1826, aged 83. 1752. William Peckitt, glass-painter and stainer, by order, gratis ; b. 1731, d. 1795 (vide 12 S. ix. 323). [b. 1786.] John Joseph Barnett ; d. 1859 (vide 12 S. ix. 483). Francis Barnett (vide 12 S. ix. 483 and 523). Mark Barnett (ibid.). [1846.] John Summers. In 1846 he resided at 24, Petergate (White's ' Directory '), and on Feb. 28 of that year advertised in The Yorks Gazette an exhibition of paintings by the old masters to be held at his house. He also called attention to his skill as a picture restorer and an artist in stained glass. He claimed to be the artist of the east window of St. Peter's Church, Leeds. " The magnificent east window in St. Peter's Church, Leeds, was designed and executed by him. It contains 11,000 pieces of glass. Mr. r S. is most enthusiastic in his profession and by constant practice has acquired a knowledge of the art which few men possess." The window is partly made up of panels " of old glass collected on the Continent by Mr. John Summers of Leeds " (Rusby, * Hist, of the Parish Church at Leeds/
