Thursday, 27 August 1885 (10–2–0 in G)
On Thursday, the 27th August, some well-struck muffled touches were rung by the local ringers on the five bells by Hatch, as a mark of respect to the late Rev. H. T. Ellacombe. It will be remembered that these bells were lately put in order by a member of the Kent County Association.
[Church Bells, August 27, 1885, p951.]

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