OT having any facts to add to, nor any fresh inferences to draw from, the stores of information regarding the origin of Bells, and the date of their introduction into the Christian temple, I propose to pass over this part of the subject without further notice; a course I the more readily adopt, because those who may desire such information will have no difficulty in ob taining it from any encyclopaedia. The object of these pages is to record the Inscriptions on the Bells of the Norfolk Churches; to Show by whom, at what time, and in what place they were cast; and by illustrations to convey, to those who rarely if ever ascend a belfry, some idea of the beauty and diversity of the bell-founders' alphabets, marks, and devices. Thus, it is hoped, some slight indication will be afforded of the religious feeling and the state of art and society at various periods of English history.
