I believe Feldman initially suspected that Anne was descended from James, so I guess that's why he was intent on tracking down any info on obscure Maybricks.

Completely agree with all of that Herlock, although I don't feel the need to apologise for still being on the fence re the Diary. I'll remain on the fence until we know for sure who wrote it and when.
