This George III Coat of Arms was painted in 1773 by Bullard, and has the names of the Churchwardens of the day thereon. It was likely commissioned by the Governors of Uppingham School, who became the patrons of St. Mary’s in 1625, following the death of Robert Johnson, Archdeacon of Leicester, who was the prior benefice. St Mary’s is now under the direct patronage of the Lord Chancellor, on behalf of the King.
