Of particular interest to them is the Hugh Oldham stained glass window. Hugh Oldham was a 16th century Bishop of Exeter, whose family, it is believed came from Ancoats, not far from St Chrysostom’s. He was anxious that people, especially clergy, be educated and his patronage of education included the founding of Manchester Grammar School, and Corpus Christi College, Oxford.
His symbol is an owl, a sign of wisdom, and the schoolboys, today, all wore blazers with the owl symbol.
In the stained glass window Hugh Oldham has an owl above his head, and he carries a model of Manchester Grammar School
Whose is this shield or what is it representing?
Any ideas? We’d be interested to know.
