"STUNTNEY is a chapelry, 1½ miles south-east from Ely station on the Cambridge, Ely and King's Lynn section of the London and North Eastern railway, and ecclesiastical parish, formed from the civil parish of Holy Trinity, Ely, in the union, hundred, petty sessional division, county court district and rural deanery of Ely, archdeaconry of Wisbech and diocese of Ely.

On the death of Sir Thomas Steward, in 1636, the manor and estate of Stuntney passed into the possession of his nephew Oliver Cromwell, who spent much of his time here before he was returned to Parliament in 1640 as M.P. for Cambridge. W. J Evans esq. is lord of the manor. The principal landowners are the Ecclesiastical Commissioners and the trustees of the late Cole Ambrose esq. The population in 1921 was 385."
