“ST. STEPHEN’S CHURCH has just had added to it one more record of services rendered it, as Messrs Brooks, Robinson and Co. have just placed in the centre of the North window a well-designed and faultlessly executed stained glass window to the memory of the late Mr William Corney, of South Portland. The order was from Mr. Robert Corney, of Tulse Hill, Coleraine, son of the deceased gentleman, and is of Dore’s celebrated pictures representing Christ leaving Pretorium. On the scroll is written “They led them away to crucify Him.” The inscription is as follows:- “To the Glory of God, and in affectionate memory of William Corney, born 1816, landed at Portland 1840. Trustee of this church, Died January 27, 1898.”
