  2. Newcombe & Watts or Francis  Watts? 1595.
  3. Hugh II Watts 1633
  4. Hugh II Watts 1633.

  • The early 2nd. bell, cast in 1595, believed to be by either Newcombe & Watts or Francis Watts of Leicester, 
    was inscribed :-
    “Cum Cum and Prea”. (Come Come and Pray).
This bell was replaced by John Taylor & Co. in 1859.
