Latest UDC in Somerset ? ... at Churchill in 1861

Is this the latest UDC usage in Somerset – a “CHURCHILL” udc in blue used on 17th June 1861 ?

The stamping of letters at all offices using undated handstamps should have ceased after the issue of an Instruction To Postmasters dated 17th March 1860, so this should be treated as abnormal usage.

Other abnormal-use examples of the “CHURCHILL” udc are known on 14th June 1861 and on 19th December 1860 (seen on eBay).
