Thanks, Nick and Chris, for that.

Would anyone also happen to have the weights of the 8th and 
9th of the old Mears twelve at Halifax?  (CJP's spreadsheet 
gives the tenor as 25-2-23.)

In case anyone's wondering, the 8th at Leeds and the 9th at 
Halifax were (with the exception of Exeter which is a 
somewhat different case) the tenors of the first two light 
eights formed by the use of a semitone bell: at Leeds, a 
sharp second cast as part of the new twelve in 1841, and at 
Halifax, a flat sixth added during the augmentation from 
ten in 1857.
