I have just been sent this. It refers to the 1616 bell by William Brend that  hung in the tower of St Mary's Newton Flotman prior to the transfer  of the 3 Braysers from Rishangles. I don't yet have the vital statistics but will post them as soon as I do. I believe it to have been around 8 Cwt however.
