John J. Jennings (1848-1919) was born in Southwark, and thought to have been trained at the Lambeth Art School. He described himself in the 1881 census as "Draughtsman for painted glass," and had a stained glass workshop at 118 Clapham Road, Fulham, and later at 96 Clapham Road ("Artists and Architects"). His work dates from at least 1878, and his practice has been described as one of those which "flourished especially in south-east Wales" (Newman 63). His later windows have been characterised as "overworked Germanic" in style, "with heavy canopy work" (Newman 285). One of his outside designers was E. A. F. Prynne. — Jacqueline Banerjee
