"Is there a copy of the 1553 (or thereabouts) survey of Church Goods for
Gloucester?  That may have some details.

Isn't Poulton Abbey near Wotton-under-Edge?  It's just possible bells may
have been transferred from there when the abbey was dissolved.  I know
Poulton was technically in Wiltshire at the time, so you may have to do some
fairly extensive hunting."

A quick check on Google show Poulton Abbey is in Cheshire.   However, there used to be an Abbey at Kingswood (Glos, not Bristol) - about 2-3 miles from W-u-E - until that was dissolved.   Kingswood was part of Wiltshire until sometime in the 19C even though it was completley surrounded by Gloucestershire.  I suppose it is possible that some of the bells were transferred from Kingswood Abbey to St Mary's
