Year | Event | Reference |

1729 | The London Scholars rang 6,204 Grandsire Cinques at St. Michael, Cornhill. This was not the longest peal in the method, as the College Youths had already rung 6,314 at St. Martin-in-the-Fields. This is one of only three known peals by this society; all its other records have been lost. | nv |

1853 | James George of Rugby was born. He was the eighth man to ring one thousand peals, see March 10, 1951, February 16, 1889 and October 6, 1928. | PPR |

1884 | A “William” peal of Grandsire Triples was rung at Woolwich, Kent, conducted by W. Weatherstone. Subsequent correspondence in The Bell News questioned whether William was the first Christian name of the entire band. | NP |

1965 | A band all with the Christian name of Alan rang a peal of Cambridge Surprise Major at Twerton-on-Avon, Somerset, conducted by Alan R Pink. It was the first of Surprise by a band all with this forename. | NP |

1976 | A record length of Bristol Surprise Maximus was rung at St Philip's Cathedral, Birmingham when 12,144 changes were rung in 8 hours and 37 minutes, conducted by Roderick W Pipe. See October 11, 1986. | nv |

1977 | 14,144 London Surprise Major was rung in-hand by four members of the Ancient Society of College Youths at 36 Lambs Close, Cuffley, Herts. David C Brown conducted the peal, which took 6 hours and 4 minutes. This feat of concentration became the longest peal of Surprise on handbells. The composition was an elderly one: it was composed by Rev H Law James many years before and first rung on tower bells at Heydour, Lincs on October 4, 1947. | nv |

1982 | A peal of Plain Bob Major was rung by a band at Tetbury in 2 hours 59 minutes whose average age was only 14 years and 151 days. | nv |
