The church is notable for the St. Nicholas or Stapleton Chapel whose east window contains a superb series of late 13th century stained glass showing fifteen colourful scenes from the lives of Christ, the Virgin Mary, St. Peter, St. Paul and St. Nicholas. The window is among the earliest in the county and supposedly among the finest. The chapel itself was remodelled in the Decorated style in 1295 at the foundation of Stapleton's chantry by Sir Miles Stapleton who acquired his Berkshire lands through marriage. By misfortune Sir Miles was never laid to rest in the church as he was killed (with his two sons) at the Battle of Bannockburn whilst serving King Edward I.

A Bit of History
from "Electricscotland.com - Some English descendants of Malcolm III ‘Canmore’, King of the Scots"
William 4th Lord Bardolf, of Wirmegay (1358-1386), who served in the French and Irish wars, latterly under John of Gaunt, and who was summoned to parliament as early as 20th January 1376. He married, after 1366, Agnes (d.after 1386), daughter of Sir Michael Poynings (d.1369), 2nd Baron Poynings of Bures, a veteran of the battle of Crecy. (One of Lord Poynings great granddaughters, Eleanor Poynings (d.1482), married Henry Percy (1421 – 1461) 3rd Earl of Northumberland). Lord Bardolf and Lady Agnes Poynings had two children that we know of: his heir Thomas 5th Lord Bardolf, of Wormegay, who died following the battle of Bramham Moor (and through whose daughter descend the Viscounts Beaumont), and Lady Cecily Bardolf, of whom later.
Lady Cecily Bardolf, a descendant, as shown above, of two of the children of King Henry II Plantagenet: Princess Eleanor (1162-1214) and King John, merging in their descendant Princess Joan of Acre. Lady Cecily married, before 1409, Sir Brian Stapleton (1379 -17th August 1438), knight, Sheriff of Norfolk, and son of Sir Miles Stapelton (died 1417), K.G., of Bedale and Ingham, another descendant of Malcolm Canmore through his son King David 1st (died 1153), his son Henry Earl of Northumberland and Huntingdon (died 1152), his son David Earl of Huntingdon (died 1219), his daughter Margaret who married Alan Lord of Galloway (died 1234), their daughter Devorguila (died 1290) who married John de Balliol of Barnard Castle (died1269), their daughter Matilda or Agnes who married Bryan FitzAlan, Lord of Bedale and Hagget (died 1306), their daughter Matilda or Agnes (born 1298) who married Sir Gilbert Stapleton, knight (died 1321), their son, Sir Miles Stapleton, K.G., of Bedale and Ingham, who died in 1365 and is buried in the chancel of Ingham Parish Church, and his son, the above mentioned Sir Miles Stapleton, K.G.,(died 1417) whose son was Sir Brian. He and Lady Cecily Bardolf had a second son, Brian Stapleton of Kessingland, Suffolk; and they had a daughter, Anne, married to Thomas Heath, of Hengrave, Suffolk. Their eldest son was: Sir Miles Stapleton, knight, Lord of Ingham Manor, Norfolk (died 1466), married Katherine, daughter of Sir Thomas de la Pole (died 1433, France, see above), brother of the Duke of Suffolk, a further merging of descents from Malcolm Canmore. They had two daughters, Elizabeth and Jane. Jane Stapelton married (1) Sir Christopher Harcourt, ancestor of the Stanton Harcourt and Abingdon families, and (2) Sir John Hudleston (or Hodleston) also with issue; Elizabeth married three times: (1) Sir John Fortesque, Chief Justice of the King’s Bench, (2) Sir Edward Howard, Lord High Admiral, and (3) as his second wife) Sir William Calthorpe, of Burnham Thorpe, Norfolk, who died in 1494 and was buried in the White Friars Church, Norwich.
