You illustrate my point exactly.

Which Harrison bells are you referring to?

It seems that so-called "Harrison" bells were actually made and tuned  
by people than the John Harrison of Longitude fame.

Please check your dates, and you (I expect) will find that your  
"Harrison bells" do not exist.

John Harrison (1629-1695)



I would be very grateful if you can prove me wrong, and actually  
enable me to record real Harrison bells, produced during his lifetime  
for I have yet to find any to test.
