See also the lists of lost and proposed towers in North America.

The weights of the tenor bell for each tower is listed in hundredweights. This is a traditional way of expressing bell weights in England. One hundredweight = 112 lbs. One quarter hundredweight = 28 lbs. The last number is the remaining pounds.  For example the Liberty Bell as recast by Pass and Stowe in 1753 weighs 2080 lbs. Expressed in hundredweights, 18-2-8.  This weight is comparable to the tenors of Groton, Miami and Philadelphia, St. Mark's.
