My wife is reading a book by Christopher Stocks, called "Forgotten Fruits" - The stories behind Britain's traditional fruit and vegetables. In a chapter on gooseberries, it talks about a gooseberry call "Crown Bob" which dates back to some time before 1812, saying:

"Crown Bob, incidentally, is the name for a particular peal of bells that may date back to the sixteenth century."

The only method containing the word Crown is Crown Court Bob Minor. How old is this method? Is it the connection, or is is something else?
