Lewisham bells (rededicated on 24 March 1894) were "fitted with Hastings'
tongues and guiders in place of the usual sliders, this being an invention
of the Rev. Edward Horne, of Bishop's Down, Tunbridge Wells, and in that
respect are perfectly unique" (Bell News, 28 April 1894 p.602)


This dates the first usage of the invention. Rev. Edward Horne (as described
in the report) was the Rev. Edward Hastings Horne - confirmed beyond doubt
from Taylors' records which show Bishop's Down this as one of several
addresses for Horne in the years 1890-1896.
