There are several examples of prominent churches and 
cathedrals having two rings of four, five or six bells at 
this time: Canterbury Cathedral, St Paul's Cathedral and 
Shrewsbury Abbey spring to mind; St Bartholomew the Great, 
Smithfield, might be a further example, as might Holy 
Trinity Priory, Aldgate; so it seems easy to believe 
Lichfield might be similar. But that of course is pure 


According to the Wiltshire 1553 survey (PRO E315/514) there were ten bells
at Salisbury cathedral.
