Though irrelevant to the topic, the ORIGINAL name for Single Court was
Nottingham Single (in Campanologia 1677).

Ruth Niblett from Canterbury once pointed out to me the remarkable 
resemblance between the older technical terms used in lace making and 
those of bell ringing ...all the more interesting when one considers 
that several of the pioneering bands of the seventeenth and 
eighteenth centuries resided in towns famous for their lace: 
Nottingham and Norwich to name but two.
