According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Staple_Fitzpaine

"St Peter's has six bells. The oldest dates from 1480. There are four 
more original bells.In 1803 one of the bells was made by Thomas 
Castleman Bilbie of Cullompton, one of the Bilbie family of bell 
founders and clock makers."

Is this enough to "credit" the tenor to TCB?
