For several centuries nearly all the Bells lived in England, Scotland and Ireland. Most of the Scotch and, likewise, the Bells were and are of the Presbyterian faith. Practically all the Bells who went from Scotland to the North of Ireland, and their descendants, remained Presbyterian.

There are a few Bells of the Catholic faith in the British Isles, but it is estimated that their number does not exceed two per cent of the entire Bell population.

The Bells who came from the British Isles to America continued in the faith of their fathers, for the most part, though their descendants in this country today will be found in the memberships of practically all the various churches. It is estimated that of all the Bells in America who are church members, at least ninety-seven per cent are of the Protestant faith.
