First peal of major on the bells.
This peal appears in the RW Vol 1,no.37, page 614 as having been rung at St. Matthew's, Cheadle (15cwt),not St Mary's, Cheadle (13-2-19). However, after some further investigation, it seems most likely that this is a typographical error. St Mary's, Cheadle no longer have canons (possibly lost in a re-hang in the 1930s) which would account for the weight loss.
