In 1485, a mention is made of a brass ships bell aboard the British ship Grace Dieu, one of the first written mentions of ships bells being used aboard a sailing vessel. Almost ten years later, twin ships bells were noted aboard the Regent, as their use began to spread throughout Europe. As sailing expanded exponentially, with European countries pushing ever farther into the New World, ships bells took on a variety of responsibilities at sea. Aside from decorative bells, the first bells were perfect for marking the passage of time at sea and were used to indicate the different shifts of the sailors aboard ship. As this was the case, the bells on a ship tolled not according to the hour of the day, but to inform the sailors of the changing shifts.
