for some attributions. If you know more, and preferably have a bit of
evidence then let me know and I'll add them.
A link then appears in the method references:
Method Attributions Henry Law James
I've also added a collection having entries for methods giving links from
a method to the first peal composition for the method (in CompLib), and a
link to all the Felstead peals recorded for that method.
Felstead Peals in a Method Database 14538 Lincolnshire Surprise
There's also another collection, Felstead Peal Database, which has entries
for compositions, categorised by first peal in method, first peal of
composition and record length, and links to the CCCBR page for the record
and the Felstead peal record.
First peal in method
Page 169 4AF-2F7 5088 Bristol Surprise Major by Henry Dains
Page 171 3F3-C4E 15264 Bristol Surprise Major by Gabriel
Page 174 047-B3C 28512 Bristol Surprise Major by Brian D
Ideally in CompLib the Felstead peal id could be an equivalent to
BellBoard ID, so could be used directly in the performance section of
compositions or collections.
