Wrentham Hall Window - Brewster Family
Posted by: Arlin Brewster (ID *****1083) Date: December 22, 2011 at 08:54:57

In my research, I have come across information regarding a (presumably) stained-glass window that existed in Wrentham Hall that had 12 family coats upon it. The coat at center was the standard Brewster family coat of arms with crest, and was surrounded by the coats of the families the Wrentham Brewsters married. To go with it was supposedly a sheet of paper listing the marriages of the Wrentham branch and their cousins, the Hedingham Castle branch, dating back to William Brewster and Mary Hervey (or Harvey).

My sources indicate that the window was eventually moved to Halstead Lodge (later renamed Greenstead Hall; located in Halstead, Essex), and I am not sure where it has gone since, or if it even exists anymore.

I had a couple of questions, and would be happy to provide some answers for anyone who is interested.

1 - Does anybody know where this window, or the paper accompanying it, ended up?

2 - Does anybody have any documentation regarding the window or the paper?

3 - Does anyone have an image of the coat of arms for the Skippon family? They are part of the history of the window and I have been unable to find their coat.

Lastly, I do have a hand-drawn reproduction of the window and the notes in my possession, produced by my 3x-Great Grandfather Rev. Waldegrave Brewster (Sr.). I do not know if he saw it in person or reproduced it from another source. I am mostly just looking to see if anyone has their own copy of the information to verify what I have, and I would moreover love to see a picture of the actual window.

If anyone's a philanthropist out there, it'd be cool to have a reproduction of the window made. Please contact me here or through my email at any time.
