In the Chester Diocesan Guild Archive may be found...


James Platt's Crown Bob 
   a. The full 720 of Crown Bob in nine methods composed by James Platt of
Saddleworth Fold, and copied out by James Wilde of Hyde (1833-78; father of
James S. Wilde, and grandfather of Thomas Wilde). This was probably written
out in the 1870s.


Also a photocopy of this.


Hope this helps.

Subject: [Bell Historians] Crown Bob



My wife is reading a book by Christopher Stocks, called "Forgotten Fruits" -
The stories behind Britain's traditional fruit and vegetables. In a chapter
on gooseberries, it talks about a gooseberry call "Crown Bob" which dates
back to some time before 1812, saying:

"Crown Bob, incidentally, is the name for a particular peal of bells that
may date back to the sixteenth century."

The only method containing the word Crown is Crown Court Bob Minor. How old
is this method? Is it the connection, or is is something else?
