So far as I am aware the best source on the history of the Hastings Stay is
George Fletcher's paper produced by the Whiting Society:
The Whiting Society of Ringers - Design for a Rectangular Hastings Stay .
There may of course be more information available on its inventor, perhaps
at Martley where he was the incumbent.

Hello historians - 


We are investigating the history of Hastings stays and have found at least
three versions of who invented them. Some references say "Rev W Hastings
Thorne" but we have found two other websites quoting "Rev J F Hastings" or
"Rev Edward Hastings Thorne". Is there a historian who knows the definitive
answer please?
