By my reckoning, there were at least three rings of six 
and five fives in Oxford by 1650.  The sixes were at Christ 
Church, St Mary the Virgin and Magdalen, while the 
fives were at Merton, New College, St Martin (now Carfax), 
All Saints (now Lincoln) and St Peter in the East.  [Source:

Aside from London, did any other city have such a high 
number of rings of five or more at so early a time?
