I've added the JT info to the Dove entry - Fidler gives the date of the 5th as 1703. I've also put in my estimates of the weights.


The bells didn't come to the foundry - they are on L&J timber fittings and it wasn't deemed necessary to bring them into the works.

Have very little on Kilmersdon, except that:

*	Yes - the fifth is by Abraham Rudhall I, 1705. It's first mentioned in the 1715 Rudhall catalogue
*	Taylors rehung the bells in a new cast iron frame on Iroko beams in 1955 - presumably the bells themselves were not taken away from the church
*	I don't have any record of diameters, so can't say if estimated weights are reasonable
