Year | Event | Reference |

1734 | Benjamin Annable married. | nv |

1798 | George Gross called a peal of 5011 Grandsire Triples “being the first rung without a single.” It was probably produced from Holt's Ten Part by omitting a particular bob in the first half that allows the second half to be completely rung. The only problem is it doesn't come round! | nv |

1896 | The Oxford Diocesan Guild rang 11,328 London Surprise Major at Drayton, Berkshire, composed and conducted by J. W. Washbrook, who also rang the tenor. Revd. F. E. Robinson rang the seventh. This exceeded the previous record of 6720 rung at Burton-on-Trent in 1888. The peal finished at 10.25 p.m. on a stormy day and six of the band had a three mile run to Abingdon to catch the last train. One missed it and had a nine-mile walk back to Oxford. | ATB233 |

1915 | William Snowdon died. See February 24, 1846. | nv |

1983 | An attempt for an “all the work” 10,080 Spliced Surprise Royal in 28 methods at Isleworth was halted after three hours' ringing as the ringing was “too trippy”. | nv |
