1811One of the first peals of Surprise Major was rung at Keighley, Yorks. It was 5,376 Cambridge Surprise Major, composed by Joseph Tebbs. He was generally a competent composer, but this composition was false. It would be more than half a century before a true peal would be rung in the method. (See January 30, 1780, February 23, 1783, November 5, 1787; 13 February 1822 and 11 February 1873.)M90
1980The London University Society of Change Ringers rang a handbell peal of Minor on the Portugese colony of Macau, conducted by Roger Bailey.nv
1984Members of the St Thomas Society on tour in Norway rang a handbell peal of Cambridge Surprise Minor at Tromso. This was claimed as the first peal in Norway, the first of Surprise on the mainland of Europe and, at 69 degrees 41 minutes north, the most northerly peal rung.nv
1985The longest peal of Surprise on handbells up to this date was rung at Barrow on Soar. The method was London Surprise Royal No 3, and they rang 15,120 changes in 7 hours and 42 minutes.nv
