On Thursday evening, August 27th, for practice, six members of this society succeeded in ringing a 360 of College Single with the bells half-muffled, as a tribute of respect to the late Rev. H. T. Ellacombe, Rector of Clyst St. George, Devon, which is the longest touch the members of this Society has ever rung in the method, the conductor having only just introduced it to the company.
Also some well-struck touches of Grandsire Minor, and Oxford and Plain Bob were rung on this occasion.
[Bell News, September 5, 1885, p178.]

This performance was rung in memoriam In memoriam — Rev. Henry Thomas Ellacombe (1790 - 1885) .
