This gives you 7 points, one more than pdurrant, and you are the rightful winner.

The two solutions that no one found was:
The Dwellers of London were, according to Carr, called fenmen, named so after the swampy region, the fenlands or the fens, from where they came. Can anyone from the UK confirm this? I thought that the fens were north of London?

The angel that bears a spear was, according to Milton, Ithuriel.

Congratulations. This riddle is not an easy one. I didn't understand a thing of it when I read Hag's Nook a couple of years ago.
