That sounds like Rev J. Holme Pilkington, who was incumbent at Framlingham
and composed many interesting and unusual peals of Bob Major. To support
this, I recently read in Bob Smith's book that they rang a 7-part of Bob
Major by Pilkington which uses the plain course lead ends.

Having done a Google search it seems that Pilkington died in about 1916,
which puts him long before the other candidates that have been suggested.
