Richard Beswick erected the Jesus Chapel on the south side of the south aisle of the choir of the Collegiate Church. (Hollinworth.) The next Trafford Chapel, he says, was built by Thomas del Booth, who gave it to Hugh Scholes, chaplain, who gave it to Sir John Trafford. The highest chapel was probably built by the Byrons. In the Strangeways chapel there was “a pardon” under a picture of the Resurrection of Christ from the Sepulchre. The pardon, five paternosters, five aves, and a creede, is xxvj. thousand, and xxvj. days of pardon. (Hollinworth.) A similar pardon, brass, at Macclesfield has excited much attention, and it has been suggested that it may be the one removed from Manchester. (See Palatine Note-book, vol. iv., pp. 127, 154, 225.)(7)
