I  challenge that.
The method appears in detail in Tintinnalogia, p,. 72 under the title
'Tendring's sixscore on five bells.' with the added note  that:
"This Peal  was made out of Grandsire on five bells, the Bob changes
in this,  being the same with those in Grandsire, and made by the same
In other words it IS pure Grandsire but with places in 1-2-3, 1, 1-2-3
instead of every '1' of grandsire.
The method appears again in Stedman's Campanalogia page 101, this time
under the heading " Mr. Tendring's Peal, call'd Grand Paradox."
It is beyond belief that this was never rung in those happy days.
