The bell at Kenn is by William Jefferies in 1815, not Jefferies & Price - 
they came later. The 2nd at Cloford, Somerset is dated 1854 by J&P. There was 
another bell by them at Vobster - the inscritions on their small bells being 

J & P

There is a complete octave by W Jefferies, dated 1835/6 at St Matthew, 
Kingsdown. I am pretty sure this was his only complete ring.
