DescriptionLooking up the aisle towards the chancel of St Andrews Church, Aycliffe, County Durham, England. The pews are Jacobean in design (1603–1625). In the 17th and 18th Century, pews in English churches were bought and owned by the people who sat in them. The Church Warden's Accounts 1738-1812 record "Be it remembered that the pew adjoining the Reading Desk formerly belonging to Mary Walker, widow of William Walker, is now the property of William Dewel of Layton in the Parish of Sedgefield". Mary Walker was my Great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-Grandmother.
