There is of course a connection between Blessington, Easthampstead Berks and Hillsborough all with bells.
They were all Estates of the Marquis of Downshire and his family, the many barrelled family name ending with Hill.
Hillsborough Castle was the family seat, Blessington another estate outside Dublin and Easthampstead the English country estate. They also had a town house in Eaton Square.
May well have been other estates elsewhere.

The Downshire's were Governors of Ireland etc and also involved in government at Westminster in Victorian times. Obviously Anglican and benefactors of their local parish churches including the provision of bell it seems.
