Excerpt:

 

In the summer of 1854 John Davy, Mayor of Exeter, gave hospitality to António, Prior of Crato (illustrated), a grandson of King Manuel I of Portugal and claimant to the Portuguese throne during the 1580 Dynastic crisis, together with his attendants for three months. The Kingfisher crest of Davie of Sandford is traditionally connected with this incident. The author tries to identify the origins of the crest.
