    Have you ever wondered about the origin of the suburb name for Footscray - this might be a clue https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foots_Cray

    Foots was a village (now a suburb of London) that was in the bend of the river Cray. Named after Godwin who as the father of he last Anglo Saxon king of England. Harold died at Senlac hill in 1066 during the battle of Hastings. Harold is supposed to be the figure pulling the arrow out of his eye in the Bayeux tapestry but more recent research suggests that a murder squad dispatched by William the conqueror killed him during the battle and the arrow was added to the tapestry (which is technically an embroidery) later.
