According to Trevor Jennings' book, The Development of British Bell 
Fittings, the first recorded stays seem to date from the second half 
of the seventeenth century. He mentions an entry in the 
Churchwarden's Accounts for Aston, dated 1678, Milton Abbas, 1666, 
amongst others.

We can beat that at Bingley, stays from 1659 at least.
