Comment: The signature is incompatible with the original date so either the signature was added in 1913 (e.g. when the Holy Family window was installed) or possibly the 1899 window was replaced in 1913 [DEDUCED]
If this is the 1899 window then originally it would have been located in the previous, 1857, church building [DEDUCED]
