    Sir JOHN DELVES, Knt., of Delves Hall, Warden of the Mint, temp. Henry VI, was slain at Tewkesbury, leaving inter alias two sons, (1) JOHN DELVES, the eldest, beheaded during the 10th year of the reign of Edward IV, leaving two daus., and (2) HENRY DELVES, the youngest ancestor of DELVES, Baronet, of Dodington).
    The South window at Broughton church, Staffs, shows Sir John Delves, killed at the Battle of Tewkesbury in 1471 and is thought to have been removed from Doddington Castle. These windows were installed in the late 18th century and some are much older than the fabric of the church. The earliest is from the 15th century. The north chancel window, shown above, has nine heraldic devices. Among the families represented are Lees, the Delves, the Savages, Duttons, and Sneyds. Several of these were connected with the Delves family of Doddington Hall near Wynbunbury in Cheshire and it is thought that these windows were removed from Doddington Hall and from the medieval church at Wynbunbury which was being replaced in the late 18th century.
