Southwell were an early 8, tenor c 40cwt, tenor lightened to c 28cwt in 1706-7 by William Noone. All recast in 1712 after the fire in 1711 which destroyed all, then 1721 by Rudhall.

Thanks.  It's interesting, but not actually relevant for my 
purpose.  What interests me is that they became a ten in 
1677-8, seemingly the result of a 6-to-10 augmentation.
