Two Evangelists — probably St Luke and St John (because St John is generally shown without a beard, and St Luke the physician would be suitable for the the subject of the lower panels here) by James Powell & Sons, with Biblical scenes below, in St James's Church, Yarmouth, Isle of Wight. "Side windows in aisles and chancel by Powell's" (Lloyd and Pevsner 305). Installed after 1856: the window is dedicated to the memory of Joseph Squire (1780-1846) and John Squire (1788-1856).

In the lower panels are scenes of Jesus healing the sick, with people looking on joyfully or in amazement. In these windows the lower panels are more interesting than the main ones.
