1662 3 bells were cast by William Hatch.
1798 Hasted records 5 bells in the tower. It is not clear whether he has confused this church with St Margaret, High Halstow. [1]
[1] The church, which stands close to the creek, is dedicated to St. Margaret; it consists of three small isles and one chancel, with a low pointed steeple, in which hang five bells, and has nothing remarkable in it.
