680St. Hilda, of Whitby Abbey died. The Venerable Bede, in his ecclesiastical histories, records that one of the nuns was awakened by her passing bell. This is the first literary reference to bells being used in England.nv
1570On this day many churches in Lincolnshire rang their bells, some recording it as St Hugh's Day, others as in honour of the Accession of Queen Elizabeth, others calling it The Queen's Day. This custom continued annually in various parts of the country, Richard Keatin in 1674 leaving a shilling “for ever” to the ringers of Bowden-Magna for ringing on this day.CBLi232
1745The bells of Carlisle Cathedral were due to be rung on this day when the Pretender entered Carlisle and for this they were condemned not to ring again for 100 years. They were chimed for the Battle of Waterloo by clocking and the old fourth bell was cracked and not recast till 1845.nv
1760The Norwich Scholars rang the first peal of Imperial III Major at Norwich. At the conclusion of the peal John Webster, who was ringing the sixth, collapsed and died. The landlord of The Eight Bells, he had been one of the leading Norwich ringers and had rung in some of the earliest peals, including the first 10,080. (See April 1, 1727) A tablet placed near his bell records: to this place John Webster fell,ed by all who knew him well:ost ingenious noted Ringer,les Sixth Bell round did bring her.osed the Peal, struck well his bell,ng the same, down dead he fell.H&A/507

1835The first peal of London Surprise Major was rung at St. Andrew's, Norwich. Henry Hubbard took part and Samuel Thurstan conducted.nv
1883An attempt to ring 11,111 Stedman Caters at All Saints, Fulham, by the Ancient Society of College Youths failed, although they achieved the peal three weeks later. Note: Snowdon (S155) wrongly gives this date as November 18. See December 8,1883.BN1883/393
1951The Bishop of Malmsbury dedicated the bells of St Michael, Highworth. The Rev F E Robinson's grandfather was Vicar of this parish for more than sixty years.nv
