I know the inlay is not wording, It seemed to me that there was lettering of some sort between the inlay and the hilt. It may not be, it may have been the pitting and my eyes.

Sorry. I misunderstood. I had a closer look but couldn't see anything other than pitting and rust.

I hope to talk to someone about the cane over the next few days and will report back how I get on.
Despite high infant mortality rates and lower life expectancies, not one of your direct ancestors died childless.
