Have you tried the trade directories for the period? It is possible that W=
. Glen & Son were bellhangers and had an arrangement with Blews. John =
Cabourn of Sutterton Lincs bellhanger acted in this way for the bellfounder=
John Briant of Hertford. There are fourteen bells on which the names of =
Cabourn and Briant appear as joint founders. See Lincolnshire Bells and B=

Just a thought but could W Glen & Sons have acted as local agents of=20
Blews. I have an idea that a similar thing occurred in the West=20
Wiltshire area, but in that instance there was no confusion between=20
the founders and the agents.
