Hi Jake, this worked!

Your explanation seems correct - I could still list the remote branches, thanks 
to the command that Philip suggested, but the linkage between the two was not 
there by default for some reason. Very strange, I have never seen that happen 

Anyway, this solution is sound and seems to set everything (history etc) back 
to how it should be.

Thanks very much for your help!
