Richard Jones and I inspected the bell at Spye Park bell last year, before
the property changed hands, as part of my current Wiltshire survey.

The bell is dated 1731 and this William Sellers (with an S) came from London
and I don't think had anything to do with Lincolnshire/Yorkshire Sellers
(who spelt their name without an S).  He was a clockmaker, CJP tells me, and
I have never seen nor heard of another bell by him.  The bell is a competent
casting, notwithstanding, and I don't think it was cast by anybody else.
