 Ampney Crucis 
        A look at the past

 

·        Gordon Beavington has painstakingly transcribed the Census for Ampney Crucis for the years: 1851, 1861, and 1871, and also the 1851 Census for Cirencester Workhouse which includes some Ampney Crucis residents. 

·        Mid-19th century, Ampney Park was occupied by the Blackwell family.  Eardley Blackwell, on a trip to Norway, fell in love with a girl out there, married and settled down in Norway.  Ivar Teigum, a Norwegian historian, has been researching the background to Eardley Blackwell's life and has published his research on the following web site.  Incidentally, Ivar would like to hear from anyone with an interest in this story – please use the email link below to make contact with him, or visit his web site.
