I think I have a list of every existing and former bell by Jefferies or by
Jefferies & Price in Anglican churches in the Diocese of Bristol; they are
not rare. The only complete ring by William Jefferies is the eight at St
Matthew, Kingsdown, Bristol; tenor 49.3/8" diameter is actually dated 10th
April 1836; 1, 4 and 5 are dated 1835, the other four undated. Rehung in a
grand iron frame by Llewellins & James in 1905. A "distinctive" ring.

NWB assisted me in compiling the complete Bristol list and I think CJP and
CD have copies if they want to beat me to it!
