There's some more information at :-

I didn't think that it would take Bell Historians long to find something  but 
only one of these bells could be from the 1823 ring of six given by Sir  
Ralph Woodward.  
Gertrude Carmichael does not mention any breakages when "the great  
earthquake of September 20th, 1825, damaged the church and the tower had to be  
rebuilt".  She also goes on to mention, "the bells not being rehung for  some years.” 
 She may have been inaccurate in her report, but I assumed  that "rehung" 
meant 'rehung in the same manner'; that is, for full circle  ringing.
