Thanks for that. I have found a good site by Steve Noyes on the Isle of Wig=
ht bells www.noyes.org.uk/iw/towers
which list the towers and bells on the Island. The older bells, 17th centur=
y mostly, come from Chertsey, Salisbury, Gloucester, and Romsey, but there =
are a few by 'RB' and 'Anthony Bond' whose foundries are not known it seems=
, and there is a John Higden who moved around as well.

I now have two documentary references to bells being cast in Romsey, where =
archaeologists have found two foundries of the right date but no evidence o=
f bell production, and good archaeological evidence of a foundry in Southam=
pton but no written records. C'est la vie!=20
