A little further exploration of the EPS site reveals that several 
generations of  the Yerbury family have been established as professional 
photographers in Edinburgh. They took over the business of a 
photographer called Balmain and it was he who is believed to have taken 
the bell picture. The link to the Yerbury family thus appears to be 
through photography rather than bells.
