Cirencester

Archives and Libraries

  • Original source material relating to Cirencester, and other parishes in Diocese of Gloucester may be found at the Gloucestershire Archives.

Bibliography

  • "Taming the Phoenix, Cirencester & The Quakers 1642-1686", a history of Quakers in Cirencester, by Brian Hawkins, published by William Sessions, York, 1998. ISBN 1 85072 205 6.

    Brian has also published another book "Quakers in Cirencester, The First Fifty Years" which is a source book rather than a history. No bound copies are available, but he has deposited copies with some libraries, and the Gloucestershire Archives. This book is ideal for family historians as it has a list of names of Friends between 1655 and 1705. [Information supplied by Rob Wilson]
