[Bell Historians] Incised Inscription

In the absence of a similar diameter bell by Joseph in 1760 I think it fair
to assume the donor insisted on his name appearing AFTER casting.

There are other incised inscriptions on Eayre bells eg. Church Langton.

[Attachment(s) from Richard Bimson included below] 

The 1760 Eayre's ring of 6 at Swithland, Leicestershire, (3rd recast 1793 by
Arnold) all bear an inscription regarding the donor.  However, the tenor
also bears the final verse of Psalm 150.  The interesting thing about this
inscription is that (unlike the other bells), whilst the Psalm verse is a
normal inscription the one to the donor is incised into the bell.  I am
conjecturing that the donor inscription was forgotten and therefore incised
after casting, but would be interested if there are any other theories.  I
have hopefully attached a picture showing the tenor.  Many thanks in
advance, Richard
