    The doctor connection is not that bad, it could be what they are looking for.

    About the sound, you cannot hear it because it is a thing called sound not a "noise". So the word sound is part of the name.

    The links are pretty direct - that is, don't try and get too complicated! And they are pretty obvious in that we checked for the answers by Googling some fairly obvious words either in the question or the accompanying text.

    The church in Steventon, where she was born, and the church in Chawton, where she lived her later life were both called St. Nicholas. Her local parish church when she died was St Swithun-upon-Kingsgate. It is because St Swithun doesn't have a graveyard that she was buried in the Cathedral. In this whole message there may be a hint

    I thought the question was asking about St. Lawrence in the Square but since it is the same parish as St Swithun-upon-Kingsgate maybe that means that we can open the field of research to both churches...

    Default St. Lawrence & St. Swithun

    As far as I can remember St. Lawrence in the Square is a sister church to St. Swithun-upon-Kingsgate.

    The advantage I have in this game is that I have visited Winchester a number of times since in the last 1fifeteen years. Heck, I was married at Compton All Saints. The disadvantage is that I am abysmal at ciphers and codes. I suppose it will all come out in the wash.

    I just realised something that would make a connection really easy:

    From Winnie's statement:

    Her local parish church when she died was St Swithun-upon-Kingsgate.
    and according to this site both churches are the same parish.

    So St. Lawrence was Jane Austen's parish! Too easy right?

    Today they are the same parish - but they weren't in her day. There's a distinct link between St Lawrence's and Jane being in Winchester.
