---|---|---|

Year | Event | Reference |

1787 | The opening of the recast ring of eight at Halifax. Six bands were invited to ring peals and five were successful. Four rang Triples and only one rang Major: a local critic judged this peal of Treble Bob Major by the Junior Society of College Youths to be the best of the ringing. | nv |

1804 | Paul Revere's bell foundry at Boston was so badly damaged by a gale that he transferred the casting of his bells to his estate at Canton | nv |

1881 | Henry Hubbard died. See August 25, 1807. | nv |

1886 | The ring of six at St. Andrew, Walkerville, Southern Australia, was dedicated. The bells, cast at Whitechapel, arrived only 23 days earlier and, in fact, the three-storied tower's foundation stone was laid only on February 6, 1886! | nv |

1941 | James Hunt died as a result of a car accident. See May 29, 1871. | nv |
