Year | Event | Reference |

1684 | Three 720s of Minor were rung at St. Saviour, Southwark viz. Oxford Treble Bob, Oxford Bob and College Single. This was the first recorded long length that had been rung anywhere to date. | |

1782 | 6000 Tittum Bob Royal was rung at St. Michael's, Coventry, by the Coventry Youths. | nv |

1858 | Big Ben, the second bell of this name, was first sounded. See October 24, 1857. | nv |

1868 | Henry Law James was born at Gloucester where his father was Rector of St. Michael's. He learned to handle a bell at the cathedral and method ringing whilst at Malvern College. He founded the St. Michael's Juniors on September 8, 1887 (q.v.). He revitalised the Cambridge University Guild whilst at Caius College, called their first peal and rang the first ever handbell peal of Double Norwich Court Bob Major for them. He was a very capable athlete and sprinter, and played football for the University. He became a priest in 1892 and Vicar of Surfleet in 1898. He restored the church and, in 1913, gave four bells to augment them to ten. He was one of the founders of the Lincoln Diocesan Guild. A composer and conductor of considerable merit, his memorial is spliced Surprise Major ringing which he discovered and popularised. He died on February 3, 1932. See also February 23, 1891. | nv |

1882 | 7,200 Double Norwich Court Bob Major was rung at Beeston, Nottinghamshire, by the Burton-on-Trent band. This was the longest length at that time and was conducted by William Wakeley. See November 1, 1831. | DNCB63 |

1961 | In the eighth attempt for the extent of Major, Frank Lufkin's band had rung 32,912 changes in 16 hours 30 minutes when the conductor called a bob a lead too soon and called a halt to the ringing. This was probably the most gallant failure of all in the history of ringing. See November 10, 1962 and July 27, 1963. | nv |
