“According to the list in Chris Dalton’s Dorset part 3 (p931), they are
indeed the only ring Davis ever cast. The rest of his output appeared to be
odd bells in rings.”

As was the case with all of the Bridgwater founders – they produced
primarily odd bells. The work of these founders is particularly interesting
as the majority were extremely good moulders (Thomas Pyke being the
exception), and their bells are also often of good tone. Again, Thomas Pyke
is generally the exception here although his 23cwt tenor at Bishops Lydeard
is rather grand.
