That's a reasonable hypothesis, but I don't recognize this one.

Aninquiry about the possible origin of a 16" bronze bell said that it wassupposedly cast in London in 1782.  There are no markings on the bellitself, but there is some lettering on the yoke (which might not becontemporaneous with the bell).  Three photos are attached, and speak forthemselves in terms of further description.
Wouldanyone care to speculate on the validity of that claim, to suggest a possiblemaker, or to provide other comments?
