Lea 6670 ff.177-8
Notes of J Reynolds
[Various pedigrees]
"Upon Mr. Nightingale's Barn (standing by Yew tree at the Town Head) in Lea, in ye parish of Ashover, which formerly was a Chappell, and is still alled the Chappell Barn, is this inscription, wrote upon each side of a window (which I copied off in 1768):_ 'A'Dni MCCCCLXXVIIJ Thys Chapel was made.' "
The above was upon the 4th bell that was broke & sent to Rotherham to be recast on Sat., 30 March, 1771. I remember seeing this bell some years ago & found upon the edge in very small figures circumscribed within a ring or circle, 1583 :-
"The gt bell at Crich was made in 1626, the next less or 4th, in 1616. The third in 1580, the second in 167-, and the least, or first, in 1721, before which last-mentioned year there were only 4 bells in the steeple.
"The weathercock upon Crich Church Spire was bought of one Birds of Mansfield in 1692 by John Beardsall Sen' and Thomas Boomer, churchwardens. It cost 28 shillings and 12s. gilding, so that it lay the parish in 40s. Anno Dom. 1769, this weathercock was taken down again and fresh gilt by David Woodhouse and George Bacon, churchwardens. The Steeple and Spire were also pointed at the same time."
"The old custom at Crich of ringing the Sermon Bell after chiming all the Bells was disused in 1769, and the method of ringing the Sermon Bell first, then chiming all the Bells, and lastly ringing the small Bell, called the Ting-Tang (which had been dumb, viz., had had no clapper in it for 70 years), was introduced. The inside of the Church was also white-washed at this time (to wit, 1769). N.B.-The last time it was whitewashed before was in A Dni 1739."
