Thank you everyone for taking the time to reply.  We were always told that the family was from Wales!!!  Thank you for pointing out it is England.  Now I can straighten out the family  :). If there is a different board that I should be on could you please point me in the right direction. 
Many thanks
Jen.

Hi
The county borders on Wales, and going back a few centuries the position of the border fluctuated as the Welsh Princes fought against the English Lords. It can be argued that the area is "occupied" Wales !!!
The surname 'Davies' indicates Welsh ancestry, and 'Baker' English ancestry.

Thank you for the explanation.  Certainly makes sense.   To add to the mix on my husbands Paternal side his Grandfather was from England and his wife who he met in NZ was from Scotland.  😄😄

You my be interested in these two monumental inscriptions from Eaton Bishop churchyard.

Affectionate remembrances ot Elizbeth beloved Wife of Hesekia Joseph Davies of this parish who departed this life dec. 21st 1877 aged 51 years.



Ann wife of Hesekia Joseph Davies who died nov. 19 1899 aged 51
also of Hesekia Joseph Davies died nov. 2nd 1930 aged 84.


I have photo of both headstones if you wish.

This beautiful old church has stained glass windows dating from 1330.
It also has a book in the church listing all memorial inscriptions and their location, which we did not notice till after we had searched the graveyard.  :) :)

There are many unreadable headstones from earlier dates

Wow.....thank you so much and yes I would like to see these monuments.  I am in New Zealand and so a bit far to pop over to see them for myself.   
The church sounds lovely.😄
