> was made by John Pennington of Exeter in 1626. 

I was under the impression that its founder was one of the Monmouth
Penningtons - can anyone comment?

As already mentioned on here, the inscription is reckoned to be a botched
facsimile of the previous bell. Has anyone looked at the lettering? Was the
old bell by the same founder as the extant 9th and 10th - both
pre-Reformation bells?
