Year | Event | Reference |
---|---|---|

1754 | The Cumberland Youths rang on handbells a course of Oxford Treble Bob Royal double-handed, i.e. one bell in each hand. This is one of the first recorded occasions on which handbells were so rung. | nv |

1796 | The first “William” peal, one of Grandsire Caters, was at St. Martin-in-the-Fields, conducted by William Shipway. For many years it was thought that this was the first name peal until it was discovered the “George's” had rung one some years earlier at St. Olave's, Southwark. (See April 23, 1791.) However, the peal book of the Cumberland Youths noted it as the first peal ever rung on 10 bells by members all of one name. | CuYPB |

1887 | The Chester Diocesan Guild was established at a meting in the Old Refectory, Chester. | nv |

1892 | The Bell News for this date published a composition of Grandsire Triples that has since become the most popular extent in the method - Parker's twelve-part. | nv |

1959 | The fourth attempt for the extent of Major at the Loughborough Bellfoundry took place. A band led by Stephen Ivin rang excellently until twelve hours had passed when one or two minor trips occurred. After another hour some confusion took place when one of the ringers had some problems with his rope and the conductor decided this marred the excellent performance and stopped the ringing. 28,850 changes had been run in 13 hours 18 minutes. See November 22, 1959. | |

1966 | 15,699 Stedman Cinques was rung at Birmingham Cathedral in 10 hours and 30 minutes, composed by J. Chilcott and conducted by J. Alan Ainsworth. See October 22, 1983. With this peal the record returned to Birmingham after twenty years in Oxford. See August 24, 1946. | nv |
