YearEventReference
1730The company at Ellesmere, Shropshire rang a peal of Grandsire Triples.nv
1775A band at Whaplode, Lincolnshire rang 10,080 Doubles in 7 hours and 26 minutes. The time included raising and lowering the bells. This remained the longest peal of Doubles rung for 183 years. See April 7, 1958.BN1884/532
1782The Northampton Mercury records that on this day William Smith, a carpenter, went up amongst the bells at Turlangton, Northampton to collect one of his tools, left there the day before. One of the bells had been left up after the evening's practice, and he pulled it over on himself, dying later of a fractured skull.RW1991/79
1816On Shrove Tuesday the ringers at Wath-upon-Dearne, Rotherham rang twenty-one 720s of Minor in 21 different methods (15,120 changes). William Blackburn conducted, the peal taking 8 hours and 27 minutes. See April 2, 1815.BN1883/159
1819A peal of Grandsire Caters was rung at Kendal, Westmoreland. In an anniversary peal 79 years later the great grandsons of two of the ringers took part.nv
1829John Briant of Hertford died, aged about 81. During his life he had been an excellent bell-founder, sending 420 bells, including twenty complete rings, to a dozen counties. A practical ringer, he rang the tenor to a peal of Oxford Treble Bob Major at St Andrew, Hertford after augmenting the bells. He retired in 1825, selling his business to Thomas Mears. His aversion to pressing parishes for payment of his bells caused him to finish his life as a pauper, and he died in the Marlborough Almshouses at St Albans.CBHe55-64
1833A peal of Stedman Doubles at Eccles, Lancs was recorded as the first peal in the method in the north of England. However, a peal board in St John, Deansgate, Manchester records that the St John's Youths of Manchester rang a peal of Stedman Triples also on that day, and they made the same claim.nv
1892Ernest Pye rang his first peal. Destined early for greatness, his career took a tragic turn. See March 27, 1915 and December 8, 1915.RW1915/280
1892An attempt at Caversham, Oxon for James Washbrook's composition of 13,440 Double Norwich Court Bob Major was brought round at the halfway mark by the conductor, Thomas Newman.nv
