Year | Event | Reference |

1338 | At the start of the Hundred Years War, Edward III issued an order to the sheriffs of all the counties lying on the sea-coast restricting the use of church bells. He wanted them to be used as invasion warnings, leaving only one bell available for normal use in any churches less than seven leagues from the sea. | nv |

1807 | The Soham Youths rang a peal of Oxford Treble Bob Major, all eight members of the band bearing the surname Tebbit. They were three brothers and their sons. This was probably the first peal by one family. | H&A/465 |

1886 | The first silent peal of Stedman Triples was rung at Burton-on-Trent. The ringers had been gathered from Sheffield, Birmingham and West Bromwich as well as from Burton-on-Trent. They rang the peal after three attempts and it was hailed as one of the most famous performances of the age. | nv |

1937 | On this day the recast ring of eight for St Peter, Bournemouth was dedicated. The old bells, originally cast by Taylor's in 1870, needed rehanging. However, E Denison Taylor, when asked to do this in 1937 was so taken with the possibilities of the project that he personally offered to pay one half of the cost of recasting them into a true harmonic ring, thus resulting in the existing splendid ring of bells. | CBD80 |

1982 | The second “name” peal by a band of ladies was when ten Ann(e)s rang a peal of Cambridge Royal at St. George, Beckenham, Kent, conducted by Ann Barter. | NP |

1982 | An unusual 10,080 of Surprise Minor was rung at Bramford Speke, Devon, in 5 hours and 10 minutes. The fourteen successive letters in the name of the village were used as a mnemonic to define the name of each method rung, e.g. Beverley, Redcar, Appleby etc. | nv |

1986 | A handbell peal of 12,120 Spliced Surprise Royal was rung at Barrow-on-Soar, Leicestershire, in 6 hours and 13 minutes, conducted by J. M. Jelley. It was the longest peal of Spliced Surprise Royal and also the longest peal of Spliced Surprise on handbells. | nv |
