William Davis, circa 1540s

My Page

John Davis (1597/8), and brothers Thomas and Capt James Davis were the sons of Sir Thomas Davis, (Knighted), a member of the Virginia (London) and Plymouth Companies. Sir Thomas Davis was born in Gloucestershire, England in 1567/68 the son of William Davis who was born in Welshpool, Montgomeryshire, Wales. (Source: Raymond Davis, Davis Family History, (Evansville Press), 6), Taken from the SAR Application of Raymond Davis. Information provided by Lt Scott Davis. I thought our Davis line above John Davis born in 1660s in Virginia was good up to the imigrant John Davis arriving in 1623/24. Lt Scott Davis had doubts about the connection above him or the John, Thomas connecting generations.

              Of the sources for material one or more may have doubts about Charles E Davis being father of James B Davis. I think Clifford L Davis is with original report that it was a James Davis and I am not sure if Carol also agrees that it is Charles E Davis or what Boyce W Davis views are on this. Randy Davis and I believe Charles E Davis is his father.

WILLIAM Davis, previously mistaken for brother of Thomas Davis of our Davis family.

Dr. Joseph Lyon Miller's book titled, "1652-1912 The Descendants of Capt. Thomas Carter of 'Barford', Lancaster County, Virginia", includes many pages on the descendants of James Conway Davis who married Mary Elizabeth Carter a descendant of Capt. Thomas Carter. He names the father of James Conway Davis as Thomas Davis born 1693 in Virginia. Genertions above John Davis born in 1660s, were derived both from legend cited by Dr. Miller, contributions by Mr. Leroy Lewis and Mrs. Michael Guido as well as Mr. Patric's contribution to Mr. Lewis on the Dawson Davis family following.

Page 154 of Dr. Miller's book indicates that, "Mary Elizabeth Carter was married at age of sixteen, on Christmas Day 1738, to James Davis of Broadfield, Spotsylvania. He was born Nov 3 1719, and was the second son of Thomas Davis (born Aug 8 1693, son of John and Susannah Wyatt (?) Davis of Stafford), and his wife Sarah Fielding (born May 12, 1695, daughter of Edward and Hannah Fielding of Northumberland).

Mr. Leslie Dawson published a history of the Dawson-Davis family 1984. On page 173 of his published history he names John Davis born about 1599 in Glouchester England and his son Thomas and grandson John and great grandson Thomas Davis and cites 11 Va. 453; 12 Va. 99, 325; 18 W. & M. 53; 20 W. & M. 89, 235. On page 173 he states there was "another" Davis family in Colonial Virginia who lived in the same area as "our ancestors". He identifies the connection of John, Thomas, John Davis who married Susannah Wyatt parents of Thomas Davis born 1693 in Stafford or Prince William. There were two Thomas Davis families living in the same area and time and they are hard to separate. I suspect they probably are brothers due to Dr. Miller's research done earlier than Mr. Dawson's. Mr. Dawson's research concerns William Davis side of the family but does include Thomas Davis and some of Davis/Carter family but not as accurately as Dr. Miller's. Mr. Dawson's research does not believe our Thomas Davis born 1693 was the brother of his ancestor William Davis born 1695. On page 159 and 160 of his history he cites a report that Elijah Davis, (son of Jessie Davis of Nelson Co., KY), wrote about his family in 1870 at age 83 when still living in Nelson County. He stated that his family lived in Prince William, that his great-grandfather was William Davis and his great-grandmother a Bland; that his grandfather Isaac lost his life in a fire before the revolution; that his grandmother was a Kincheloe; that his father Jessie joined in the Army in the revolution with six brothers, and only Jesse who was a Captain and one brother returned from the war; and that the family moved to Nelson County after the war.

This is a paragraph of Dr. Miller's contribution on these generations. Contributed by Dr. J. L. Miller, Ashland, Ky. Dr. Miller did not mention the Dawson Davis report in his book and he may not have been aware of it, and his research indicates that Thomas Davis born 1693 who Married Susannah Wyat Davis was his earliest proven ancestor but did cite ledgend for the other two generations. Mr. Dawson cited the earliest two generations as fact.

(CONTINUED)

The oldest record preserved among the family papers of this family is an original copy of a deed made in 1691 by John and Susannah Davis, living somewhere on the Potomac river, probably in Stafford county, as the land conveyed was situated on Aquia creek in that county. I also have the birth records from an ancient Davis Bible, beginning with the birth of Thomas Davis, son of the above John and Susannah, born Aug. I, 1693. Beyond 1691 we have only tradition, which I have attempted to verify from the York county records and other sources.. The tradition is that John Davis was a son of Thomas, of York county, and he a son of John Davis, of Gloucester, Eng., who came to the colony soon after the settlement at Jamestown. My search resulted as follows:

In the musters of the inhabitants of Virginia in 1624, it is shown that Thomas and John Davis, presumably brothers, came to the colony in the ship John & Francis, in 1623. Thomas, b. 1585, seems to have settled in Warwick county. He had the title of Captain in the 1624 muster, and also in 1655, when he patented 300 acres of land in Warwick county; in 1662 he was granted 500 acres of land in the same county under the title of Major Thomas Davis.
