  1. I have just returned to Brisbane from a pleasant month in England which included a couple of days in the Hunts Archives looking for material on my wife’s ancestors principally from Godmanchester, and looating relevant churches in the area. Please don’t think I am asking you to do genealogical research for me – I sure you have plenty to do without that – but I wondered if there is a quick answer to this. One of my wife’s direct ancestors, William Fox, married Sarah Davies in Little Paxton on 18 December 1770. She seems to have been one of the daughters of the Vicar of Diddington, John Davies, who I think took an MA at Merton College Cambridge which may have been decisive in his obtaining the appointment. He held it from 1727 to his death in June 1767. His successor, according to a note I made, was Richard Davies who held it for some years. JD had a son Richard Heron Davies, but I suspect he died in infancy. Is there any record of any kinship between the two Vicars? (Incidentally, the second name “Heron” is presumed to be evidence of a Heron ancestor, and, by deduction based on family legend, one of the descendants of Sir John Heron, Recorder of Huntingdon/Godmanchester pre 1676. That is something I will have to work on!)
    Kind regards,
