I do believe this style expired at the end of the 19th century or perhaps even earlier
It was indeed common in the nineteenth century & earlier, and seems to have died out since. Certainly, there is now a superstition that the ampersand should only be used in the names of firms and companies, and I have no idea how it arose; it is not confined to English. You don't see it much used in the twentieth century (except in the work of Fowler).
