> 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
> 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).
