The reason I was interested in the figures was not some anachronistic 
enthusiasm for old-style bells, but rather for more objective 
purposes: I wanted to compare them with Mancroft.

Absolutely, but also for their day they would have compared well - 
there was a logic to the design and tuning of Coventry and Mancroft 
even though there are things that are routine today that were not 
dreamed of at the time.
