Scope and content

William Nathan Wells known to all who have any love and interest in Bampton Morris dancing know him as either Jingy or Jinky. Jingy wrote out his memories of Morris Dancing in Bampton in 1914 and in later years in 1937 he added to his notes. By this time he was almost blind and someone typed the notes up for him. Originally the whole lote were in one place but someone destroyed the last pages, but these are the surviving 18 pages and they give a wonderful insight not only into Morris Dancing in Bampton, but life in Bampton in the first third of the twentieth century.
