Wath (near Ripon) Yorks


The Victoria county History says  in the internet version ('Parishes: Wath',
A History of the County of York North Riding: Volume 1 (1914), pp. 390-396.
URL: http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=64773) 


"There are six bells: the treble and tenor by Shaw & Co., Bradford, 1901;
the second and third by Warners, 1873; the fourth and fifth dated 1776."


This does not agree with Dove, which has the tenor also by Warner 1873


2 and 3  and probably 6 would therefore date from the Incumbency 1862-1892
of the Rev W C Lukis (of "Church Bells" fame), some of whose papers I have
been working through at the Guernsey Museum - though I have not yet come
across any reference to these bells. 


Please can someone confirm the accuracy of these details? (And possibly give
the inscriptions?)
