Hello – many of you will have Bill Butler’s book on handbells – page 36 - 37 says that Robert Wells 1 (1725 – 81) was the first to number handbells, with theories about how he devised the numbering scheme.

I don't think 15 C is a measure as such just a numbering system starting at high C being 1 C (which is about as high as a handbell ought to go - to paraphrase Oklahoma).
