Hello George, 

My good lady tells me that as far as she can remember the details are on a simple peal board in the ringing chamber. 

As it was possibly ten years or so ago, her memory is not clear on the details. 

Best wishes,

Well, there should be a source for the ‘peal’, if that was what it was, in possibly the local newspapers?

On this document 




 on p56  (which is p67 of the pdf) in the section giving details of the bells at Exeter, Ontario it states 



"Among all the change ringing was what appears to be the first full peal to be rung in Canada, 5040 of Plain Bob Minor, in about four hours, rung on July l, 1895. This precedes the Vancouver peal by 16 years." 

There is no reference to this "peal" in the Felstead records.  Can anyone say if it was actually rung to the peal standards of the day or not?
