Further detective work on the unknown founder's mark posted the other 
day. Clouston and Pipe's Bells and Bellringing in Suffolk has a 
photograph (on page 26) of an identical mark on the tenor at Sudbury 
St Peter. This bell is attributed to John Kebyll, a London founder of 
the late 15th century, who was reusing stamps and letters first used 
by Stephen Norton (given by Stahlschmidt as 'of Kent') in the 1360s 
and handed down from founder to founder in London. Unfortunately 
Stahlschmidt doesn't give a picture of this particular mark.
