    Spot on Flook :)

    Today the Cwm is where some/most would like to live :rolleyes:. Years ago, 1800's, before the clean-up act it's where the town used to get rid of their soil (as in night soil, or for those who speak proper radnorshire like me) poop. It used to be the cesspool of the town :eek:

    I don't want to spoil the party and there's still work to be done on the genealogy of all the families involved, but I've been looking at the original question again and trying to strip everything down to its bare essentials.

    Having said all that, the question was (I've highlighted what I think is pertinent to my theory and so you'll need to expand the quoted section to see it)>

    My simple theory is that Edward was given the name Breeze out of courtesy for the patronage Edward Breeze had shown Edward Lutwyche Davies. Edward Breeze Davies was his father's first-born son and so this was the first time Edward Lutwyche Davies could extend this courtesy.

    From Berrow's Worcester Journal 25 March 1841.

    "Edward Breeze, Esq., the worthy High Sheriff for Radnorshire, has appointed the Rev. Edward Lutwyche Davies, M.A., Perpetual Curate of Kenderchurch and Kilpeck, in the county of Hereford, his Chaplain."

    What about that?

    Just to let you all know and thank you all very much for your invaluable help with this thread.

    I was doing this research for a couple in America. They have spent the last week in Scotland, visiting the husbands ancestral homes. Today they are off to Manchester to pick up the wife's sister. She is flying in this morning. They are them making their way to Knighton. I am to meet them in the George & Dragon at 5.30. We will then make our way to the churchyard so that I can point out the wife's ancestors graves. I have had a word with the man who usually locks the church, and he has arranged to not lock it till 9pm. This will give me chance to show then the stained glass window dedicated to one of their ancestors. I have 3 copies of my booklet, on the history of Knighton church, printed and ready to give them. Later, we are off for drinks and a chat. Quite looking forward to it.

    Thank you all once again for your help. I couldn't have done it without you {-(^^)-}

    That's fantastic Terry. I'm sure your visitors will be over the moon with being given a guided tour of Knighton Church (and their visit to the local hostelry ;)) - and how satisfying for you, to have your efforts appreciated and actually meet the people who you have done the research for. Have a great evening :)

    That is my family. Great grandpa Edward Breeze Davies was killed in New York when he was leaving to go get the inheritance.

    Can it it still be claimed?
    I think only theen can.
    I was adopted and was just connecting with my biological family.
    I JUST heard about this stuff today and then to see it written here... Wow

    I just heard part of this story today from my biological cousin. Apparently my great grandpa was the one who died on his way to pick up the inheritance.
    My biological family is still around. I was adopted so I am just learning about this part of my lineage. So weird to see it online also.
