In the case of Kent Treble Bob Major, the extent with the tenors together
is 8448 (certainly as a three-part), so was often described as "complete"
on old peal boards. An example of this would be the 8448 of Kent rung at
St. Helen's, Worcester, in 1833 which was described on the peal board as "a
complete peal of Kent...being the full extent with the tenors together."
