Richard Fenton was born in 1747. Dr Davies described his early years in St Davids, followed by education at Haverfordwest Grammar School and Oxford.
After a time in the legal profession in London, Richard Fenton was a circuit judge in Wales. An inheritance from his uncle enabled him to build a home in Lower Fishguard. He spent time on various tours of Pembrokeshire, usually on horseback. These he recorded in a book, and Dr Davies detailed some of these journeys, illustrated by some fine recent photographs of places visited.
