DAVYS Victorian FAMILY ALBUM now sold
« on: Tuesday 22 December 09 11:23 GMT (UK) »
Rev. Edmund DAVYS (c.1824-1901) was the son of the Right Rev. George DAVYS, Dean of Chichetser, Bishop of Peterborough and first tutor to Queen Victoria, whom she considered "monotonous and soporific"!

Edmund was curate of Uppingham, Rutland; vicar of Peterborough and Leicester; missionary to Hong Kong; and vicar of West Hampstead.  He married Elizabeth (c.1834-72) and had two sons:

Rev. George Paul DAVYS (born 1868), rector of Blunham, Bedfordshire.  He married Ethel Margaret ARGELS in 1911.

Rev. Edmund Mark DAVYS (born 1870), Master of Netley Court Prep' School, Southampton.  He married an American, Harriet Gee HOMER in 1897, with whom he had a son, George Gwynne DAVYS (born 1900).

The album (with original clasp) contains 32 pictures, including an unusual photo of the family servants in Leicester, all of whom are named, and pictures of the boys in Hong Kong.  Family tree covering five generations included.

All reasonable offers considered, as album for sale due to straitened circumstances.

Thank you for your interest, but some years ago the album went to a collector, who is keen to preserve it.

Hi Josh
My Grandfather was Gwynne Davys and my Great Grandfather was Edmund Davys
-the boy on the right in the Hong Kong photo
So I would dearly love to see the other photographs in the album
that is now with a collector.
Is there anyway I or you could contact him or her on my behalf if they are still
with the same person.
Best Wishes
Sarah.

Sarah, I'm very sorry to say that the email I have for the buyer has bounced twice now.  The album sold 7 years ago, so I assume they have changed their address.  I do not have their postal address anymore either.
If anything comes to mind, I'll get straight back in touch with you. 
Very sorry again, Josh

This is really sad - most of us would be so happy to have an album like this or, if not the album, scans of the pictures.

If the collector who bought from JoshP obtained it to preserve it then it was in good hands, they just need finding....would a social media campaign work? It would be the sort of hunt the media love.
