Scope and content

Terry Rouse came to live in Bampton in 1943 aged 9. His father Reg Rouse had been farming in Somerset at Upper Langford and George Collins had a field next to the farm where Reg was working. George bought Weald farm and advertised for a farm manager and Reg got the job and so he and his family came here in 1943. Terry immediately joined the choir of St Mary's and Reg was a bellringer; two years later aged 11 Terry learnt to bellring and rang the bells for the next 70 years. He was also at one time a churchwarden and for about 40 years he's been a server (as at March 2017). He started Morris Dancing with the Bampton Traditional Morris Men under Francis Shergold in 1964 but had to stop in 2000. He married Janet in August 1969 and by Christmas Janet was ringing well enough to ring with the others. She was the very last person to be taught by Terry's father, Reg Rouse. She has been a bellringer ever since. When the choir reformed in St Mary's in 2002 Janet joined as an alto and as at March 2017 is still singing with the choir. She occasionally rings but a back problem does not allow her to be a regular ringer. She has also been the Archivist for the Bampton Community Archive since 2007 but was making films for the Archive before that. Keith learnt to Morris dance with Francis and Brian learnt to bellring. This photograph was taken in 2013 just a few days before Keith went off to work in Canada for just over a year. Left to right are Terry, Keith, Brian and Janet.
