I was under the impressions that Horham https://dove.cccbr.org.uk/detail.php?tower=14093 were the oldest 8 and Merton were the oldest complete peal of 8 by one founder. I know that both Urchfont and Bishops Cannings (Wilts) had early peals of 8 too, but with various subsequent recasts/replacements.
Best wishes,

Subject: [Bell Historians] Early rings of eight

I was planning to spend a bit of time researching a list of 
early rings of eight or more, probably restricting myself at 
first to the period 1550-1700.  However before starting, I 
thought I would check here to see whether anyone else had 
already done this, or something similar.
