They look like Canadian windows to me. Not French.

I agree that they do not seem to be French.  Maybe McCausland?  They've been in Toronto for generations.

Is McCausland from Scotland? I don't know the name, but they look very like others that I've seen in churches here. Interesting that they're in a Presbyterian Church too - we're a Presbyterian Country. I don't know, I'm just throwing in a sugestion.

Linda, I hope this URL is complete.  If not, just Google McCausland Studios and there are a couple of sites with info on them.  In business in Toronto since 1850.  http://www.canadacouncil.ca/prizes/ggavma/xh127240204281875000.htm?subsiteurl=%2Fcanadacouncil%2Farchives%2Fprizes%2Fggvma%2F2001%2F2001-03-e.asp

 Try this link http://www.eternalglass.com/index.htm Its the Bob McCausland official website. I think the centers look like they could be McCausland or Lyon's . I wouldn't be surprised if the center figural window was added later and the surrounding glass was the original design. I have definetly seen the Good Samaritan window they showed ,many times before, that exact style. I think thats copied from Albrecht Durer.  I would like to lean toward lyon's Stained glass. the surrounding glass looks like Hobb's Talk to you later.

After further  review of the tape, I think they're  all Lyon's, all done at the same time.
