Subject: [Bell Historians] Crown Bob



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?
