Scope and content

William Nathan 'Jingy' Wells, 1868-1953, played the fiddle as well as both dancing and fooling for the Bampton Morris for very many years. In these two photographs taken on Bank Holiday Monday 1973 his son Bobby is seen donating Jingy's last fiddle to Reg Hall to play with the Bampton Traditional Morris side. When Jingy retired from being squire of his Morris side he handed over the squireship to Francis Shergold whose side are now known as the Bampton Traditional Morris Men and Reg still plays (2018) for this side. Francis played the melodeon but not the fiddle which is probably why he didn't give Francis his fiddle.
