Subject: [SPAM] [Bell Historians] Chewton Mendip

I'm trying to sort out the information I gathered during last Monday's
Somerset open day. Thanks for the responses to questions so far!
 Re Chewton Mendip:
Presumably the present superb ring has been re-hung since 1913. If so, who
by and when?
There seem to be conflicting accounts of the details of the pre-1913 bells.
Is there a definitive version? The old notice at the base of the tower gives
the following:
1. T. Mears, 1825
2. Thomas Pennington, 1627
3. Thomas Pennington, 1627
4. Thomas Bilbie, 1753
5. Thomas Bilbie, 1725 (the 5 reversed)
6. Inscription mutilated - no founder or date given
