Lucy Elizabeth JONES, 13 Dec 1958, 96, 1868
[Ed: I cannot locate a place named 'Druith'. Richard Denison's entry in
'Alumni Cantabrigiensis' says he entered Magdalene College Nov 22 1771,
aged 18. He was s. of George, of London, b. Dec. 9, 1754, and gained
LL.B. 1780. Thereafter he was curate of Long Ditton, 1776; Rector. of Harnhill,
Glos, 1776-1825, and Vicar of Driffield for the same period. He died Jan. 31,
1825, aged 72, at Driffield. So it seems likely 'Driffield' was intended]
