Year | Event | Reference |

1778 | The Braughing Youths, who had rung their first peal thirty-two years earlier, decided to ring a double length peal of Plain Bob Major. They rang 10,080 changes, in 6 hours and 34 minutes, with James Walker as conductor. He called a longer peal for them a year later. See September 30, 1746 and May 10, 1779. | nv |

1834 | James Pettit born. A prominent nineteenth century member of the College Youths, he called the first peal at St Paul's Cathedral, and rang in the long lengths at Fulham and Bethnal Green. He was also the conductor of the long peal of Stedman Cinques at St Michael, Cornhill in 1887 that was lost after 10,000 changes with only two bobs to be called. He died on May 12, 1912, aged 78. | nv |

1895 | James W Washbrook turned in the tenor at Wells Cathedral to a peal of Kent Treble Bob Royal. The previous December he had rung it single-handed to a peal of Grandsire Caters. It was considered impossible at that time to ring a peal on the bell with only one ringer. | nv |

1912 | What was recorded as the first peal by a band of all policemen took place at St Mary Magdalene, Holloway on this day when eight members of the Metropolitan Police Force rang a peal of Grandsire Triples, conducted by P.C. Cornelius Charge. | RW1912/292 |

1969 | The first ever peal on 16 bells. This was Kent Treble Bob 16-In on handbells at Watford, conducted by John R Mayne for the Hertford County Association. | nv |

1981 | The first peal by a band all with the first name of "Mark". This was 5024 Mark Surprise Major at Mark, Somerset. | NP |

1987 | A peal of Cambridge Surprise Minor was rung on the back six bells at Southwark Cathedral, conducted by Mark Regan. With a tenor of 48 cwt, this was the heaviest ring of six rung to a peal. | RW1987/562 |
