Year | Event | Reference |

1731 | The local company at Painswick rang the first of their many peals with 5,040 Grandsire Triples, repeating the performance again with further peals on March 1 and March 26. | nv |

1750 | The Eastern Scholars rang the first peal of Eastern Bob Royal at St Sepulchre's, London, conducted by George Meakins. They had rung the Major version of the method some months earlier on December 27, 1747. | ES52 |

1789 | Samuel Thurston was born at Norwich. A master mason, he spent most of his life working on Norwich Cathedral, apart from a short period when he was in London. He was an extremely accomplished ringer, becoming a College Youth in 1813. He joined the Norwich Scholars in 1914 and with them rang some noteworthy peals including the first of Norwich Court Bob Maximus. The Norwich Scholars presented him with an elegant inscribed silver-gilt jewel for this. He died on January 9, 1841. (q.v.) | H&A/533 |

1806 | The Bury and Norwich Post for this date recorded: “Yesterday sennight died, aged 66, Mr Richard Browne, baker, of S. Martin's of Oak. He was the first man that raised the tenor of S. Peter's bells, on which account the ringers gave an excellent funeral peal on the day of his interment.” | RW1977/282 |

1819 | Henry W Haley born at Bethnal Green. A Spitalfields weaver, he began his ringing career as a conductor of lapped handbell peals, but he became one of the best-known ringers in the middle of the nineteenth century. Conducted the first peal to be rung in the USA. See June 9, 1850 and January 29, 1886. | BN1909/546 |

1884 | With a peal in five Minor methods at Wolstanton, the North Staffs Association scored their first peal. They had lost it after three extents the night before. | BN1884/559 |

1898 | What was probably the first peal by a band of Railwaymen was rung at Christ Church, Swindon. All the ringers worked at the Great Western Railway Works in the town. | BN1898/536 |

1959 | The University of Wales Society was formed. | nv |

1978 | The bells of St Paul, Bedford were augmented to twelve and rung for the first time on this day. It was the first ring of twelve in the county. | nv |
