As far as I can tell there are no other entries for them.  They may have moved interstate.

Check Australian national archives - there is correspondence from an Arthur Alexander Langley regarding an invention

Hi Gennig :).
  Im trying to find if there is a connection with 2 duaghters of said couple.
  Ethel jane langley b sept,forbes nsw?1904-1974.

  lillian may langley?
  Also the name of -Authur Alexander Langley,I have found other poss matches, but the name is switched around=Alexander auther etc..  What would give me the most conclusive info of this marriage and births of the 2 girls?
  I cant hide my excitement about this family,BUT  I could be totally wrong,I ve wondered about this for a while now,and thought i may get positive info from Rootschatters!
 Hint-Eve Langley(Gooogle)...........fingers crossed....chrissy.

I found Ethel and Lillian on the NSW online indexes.

Reading Eve Langley's biography indicates the family ended up in NZ. 

alo one biography for Eve has her DOB as 1904 another 1 Sep 1908.

I think the marriage certificate will tell you whether Myra is connected to you Davidson family. 
I couldn't find a birth in Victoria for A A Langley, although he is supposed to be there.
I found a death for an Arthur A Langley 1911 in NSW. 
There is also a marriage of a Myra Langley to a Patrick Cullen in Victoria 1916.

 marriage- A.langley? :-\,then comes there children-Ethel jane-"Eve Langley :-\"The pea Pickers"
  Lillian may"-"June"?
  Genni,Id really appreiate your opinion on this,It troubles me immensly :D.Id really not like to get all excited yet,But what a CHARACTER-amazing woman!.............cheers chrissy.

An article by Kate Makowiecka
Indicates that Eve Langley Changed he name from Ethel Jane and June was baptised Lilian May.

"Wilde Eve: Eve Langley's Story" Frost, Lucy (ed)
Is her autobiography which she writing when she was committed Mental Asylum.

If you can get hold of it, it might help.

Just checked my local library and they have it.
