A simple question from one who is a tyro:

I would like to date one of our bells - or at least have an idea whether it 
was one of the four in the 1552 Return of Church Goods. (Yes, I am interested 
in the history as well as the "go" of the bells.)

To give you some background:
The bell has no inscription or other marking, just the wires.
It is long-waisted, still with its cannons
Its date is shown as Unknown in "The Bells of Essex"
One of the other bells is by a known bellfounder (pre-1552),
the rest are dated explicitly (post-1552).
