Yes, this is Blews - and no name change, just poor transcription! Blews senior was (from memory) William Henry Maxwell Blews

Used the disk for the 1851 census today. Only Devon , Norfolk and Warwick,
are available for some reason, but it has the advantage that you can search
for people by occupation. Type in bell founder, and here's what you get. (I
've omitted most of the family details)

William PANNELL, Foundry House, Tiverton. Aged 75. Occupation; Bell

James BARWELL Summer Hill Terrace No 25, Birmingham. Aged 33 Brass Cask
& Bell Founder Employing 15 Men 13 Boys

EVANS, John 104 & 105 Moland St, Aston-War Aged 63 Bell & Brass Founder
John EVANS Son U 32 M Bell & Brass Founder Aston-War
Wm. Henry EVANS Son U 27 M Bell & Brass Founder Aston-War

Williams BLEINS 18 Spring Hill Terrace, Birmingham. Aged 57 Brass Founder
Lamp Manufacturer Weight & Measure Maker Bell founder Empl 40 Men
William H. M. BLEINS Son U 24 M Partner with Father Birmingham-WAR
Could this be a misreading of Blews, or was the name changed in the next

Samuel MARKLEW 17 Court No 1 Windsor St, Aston Aged 43 Brass Founder
Joseph MARKLEW Son - 18 M Bell Founder

Fredr. James STIFF Brougham Street, Erdington aged 17 Fancy Bell Founder

A request for Bell hanger produces 69 people, many of whom seem to household
bell hangers. The only person said to be a church bell hanger is Thomas
HURRY of Ladys Lane, Norwich aged 67.
