Frampton

FRAMPTON, a tything, in the parish of Sapperton, union of Cirencester, hundred of Bisley, E. division of the county of Gloucester, 6ΒΌ miles (W. by N.) from Cirencester; containing 220 inhabitants. A chapel of ease, erected at the cost of the Earl Bathurst, was consecrated in Oct. 1844. A school is supported by subscription. Two urns filled with denarii and other copper coins were discovered here in 1759, by a waggon passing over and breaking them; and near the spot are vestiges of an ancient camp.
