1816To take part in a peal of Oxford Treble Bob Major for the Cumberland Youths at Shoreditch on this day, William Booth, a well-known Sheffield ringer, spent three days in a stagecoach travelling to Shoreditch and another three days travelling home. William Booth had also taken part in the first peals of Treble Bob Major on handbells five years earlier.nv
1912The Bell News noted that the first 720 ever rung in New Zealand took place on this day. It was one of Bob Minor rung at St Matthew, Auckland, conducted by C Hamblin.nv
1939In a peal of Minor at Bassingham, Lincs, one hundred different methods were rung for the first time. The peal, conducted by George E Feirn, was the work of several composers, who over more than twenty-five years had gradually extended the number of Minor methods that could be included in a true peal. See July 16, 1938 and June 24, 1939.RW1939/412
1940A Lincolnshire vicar, Rev R G Graham, became the first person to be prosecuted under the ban on ringing church bells brought in on June 13, and was sentenced to four weeks imprisonment. The Ringing World wrote to the Home Secretary pointing out that the ban did not come into force until June 19, and the vicar was released. At a later appeal the sentence was quashed and costs awarded to Rev R G Graham.RW1940/481
