1844Jasper Snowdon was born at Ilkley, Yorks. He took up ringing with his brother, William about the year 1871 and soon became very proficient, ringing about a hundred peals in various methods, including the longest peal of Double Norwich Court Bob Major at that time. He was a co-founder of The Bell News, and worked diligently to supply it with interesting articles. It was as an author he is remembered: his textbooks on Grandsire, Ropesight, Treble Bob, Double Norwich, Standard Methods were all meticulously researched and well written. See November 16, 1885.nv
