Entirely funded by wealthy merchant and Royalist John Harrison who also paid for the Grammar school and Almshouses nearby. He is buried near the altar, and a series of stained-glass windows depicts his good works. One of the windows shows an apocryphal tale in which Harrison presents King Charles (then imprisoned in Leeds) with a tankard of gold coins disguised as a draught of ale.
