I have found that most of what he says is lifted from:-

"There are five bells, inscribed: (1) T.C. [or T.G.] 1670. (2) Taylors bellfounders Oxford 1839.(3) Taylor . s founder . s Oxford: 1839. (4) J. Taylor & Co.: founders Loughborough 1873. (5) Conjugium partus mysteria festa decoro anno Domini 1756. The first is by Tobias Norris III and the fifth by Joseph Eayre. In 1709 there were six bells, (fn. 79)  but by 1724 there were only five."

Not sure if this helps or hinders!
