Thank you both for your replies.
The mark is on the bell I mentioned at lansallos in cornwall.
Not only does it have the mark in the photo but the shield used by 
william dawe 1400s and william ffounder date uknown, a chevron and 
three laver pots.

Also the shield used by william ffounder date uknown a chevron with 
three trefoils.
The chevron with three trefoils is the Rufford family shield.
Could William ffounder have been William Rufford

A phone call today from Taylors bell foundry a Austin Bracker used 
the mark in the photo between 1550 and 1560 in London Lynn and Devon, 
more information to me in the post.
