In February 2002 Patrick Ellis received an Award
from the Goodliff Fund to store the data and the photos he had
putting together the Millennium History of Great Gidding , together
with many more photos and a lot more information that couldn't
be included in the book.
This has resulted in two CDs (now available)
and a third in the course of preparation.
CD1 is a Data CD containing
information from the Parish Register (Baptisms, Marriages and Burials),
Censuses, Wills, Churchyard
gravestone inscriptions and other parish records. More
CD2 is a Photo CD which
includes the photos collected, both for the history book and since
photos taken recently (since
1997) of almost every house in the village, together with some
from around the parish. Each house photo is identified by its house
number (with acknowledgement) and a map of the village with the
house numbers added. It contains 180 old black and white photos
and 250 recent colour photos. A selection of these older photos
can be seen in the Photos section of this website. (Coming
Copies of both have been
given to Great Gidding School, to the Great Gidding shop, to the
Record Offices in Huntingdon and Northampton
and to the Hunts Family History Society.
CD3 – planned for
later this year – will include old
village maps, tables showing who lived where, property transactions,
field and furlong names, rent and tax lists, Baptist records and
school records .
The CDs are available for purchase for £13.00
each (plus p & p). Contact Patrick Ellis
