A Conversation for 'Oranges and Lemons' - The Nursery Rhyme

Oranges and Lemons

I'd like to know if I can be directed to the cite for the date of the oldest bell at Stepney. This date (1385) is also cited on Wikipedia, but I fear both are inaccurate. There may have been a bell recast in 1385, but the oldest bell in Stepney tower currently dates from 1806.

You can find the church here - http://www.stdunstanstepney.org/

I can't speak for wikipedia but I did a lot of very thorough research on this entry. If you can find proof that the information is incorrect then I will change it, but I am confident of my dates.

Sorry, I misread 'cite' as 'church' for some reason.

I'm afraid there's no chance of me remembering where that one bit of information came from, I've got a bookshelves full of books about London, plus I visited my local and country libraries and did a lot of visiting around London, and the entry was written nearly six years ago.
