Archiebold Dudley Davies, born autumn 1893
« on: Friday 18 July 08 20:54 BST (UK) »
Can any one please help me trace Archiebold Dudley Davies, baptised on January 1st 1894,, in Llanfechain, Montgomeryshire. His parents were Francis John Davies and Sarah Anncutt Dudley, school master and school mistress. [ the extent of our knowledge on him]. Did Archiebold get married? If so to whom?  and when?
We believe he may have been an engineer and maybe have worked for some time in Africa. It is possible he may have retired to St Anns on Sea, Lancs. Where there maybe a record of his death.
Any information on Archiebold Dudley Davies would be gratefully welcome. Very many thanks ,Regards, Eric.

Hi Eric

As Pete says, it's very difficult to trace him after 1901 without checking the GRO index, quarter by quarter for marriages or deaths. It might be possible to trace a WW1 record on the National Archives site and possibly any pension records but otherwise, it's just a hard slog.


I'll see if I can find anything on WW1

There is an Archibald D Davies showing on the WW1 records  - Royal Welch Fusiliers .  I think it says disembarked 4 Nov 1919.

It might be him - need to check for a pensions now  :)
