Devonshire look-up please - DAVY/DAVEY
« on: Saturday 19 June 10 07:43 BST (UK) »
I would appreciate any help in confirming details on my ancestor Thomas DAVY/DAVEY.  I have been given information that he was born in Topsham, Devonshire in 1773, to Robert DAVEY and Alice.  Thomas was transported to NSW in 1803 "for the term of his natural life".  I have confirmed information on his life in NSW - name change to DAVIS, marriage, children etc.  I would like to trace his family back further in England.  Thanks in anticipation.

Hi Simone.  Yes I'm on the same track as you!  I have the DAVYs back to Robert DAVY b.1657 in Topsham, who married a Rachel b. 1661 (marriage date unknown at this point).  They had a son, Robert (christened 5/4/1683) who married Elizabeth WARE (christened 9/5/1677) in Heavitree, Devon on 23/1/1706.  I know of two sons, Robert & William.  William (christened 30/4/1710) married Agnes TAYLOR (born abt. 1714) in Exeter, St. Leonard on 12/8/1733.  They had a daughter named Elizabeth (b.1733), a son named William (b. 1739) and a son named Robert (christened 4/12/1741) who married Alice MILTON (1743-1805) in Topsham on 11/12/1768.

Which brings us down to the point you have reached!  Robert and Alice had two sons I know of; John (born 1769) who married Agnes LANGWORTHY in Heavitree, Devon on 23/3/1791 and had six children; and our Thomas (1773-1850)

The Davis family have kindly shared information with me on the many lines of the family descended from Thomas and Harriet TYLER.  My line is that of their youngest son, Mark.  Which branch are you on?

Hope this has been of help.  Feel free to contact me again.

I had an idea that it went back to Robert and Rachel but wasn't completly sure i haven't been able to search any further than that. So it's nice to know that we are both on common ground here :)

My line is of Thomas Davis 1813 and his son Thomas James Davis 1842, William Mark Davis 1849, Claude William Davis 1882, Claude Edward William Davis 1910,

Hope this help's you too

Thanks for that Simone!  We are 4th cousins, twice removed!  I had your family details down to Claude William and his six siblings.  We have an unwritten rule in geneaology circles to not share details on living relatives, unless we know the recipient well.  Just a word of caution to you!

It's so nice to see a young person researching their tree.  Most of us are a bit long in the tooth - I started about 30 yrs ago, but career and family halted progress for a while.  Of course we didn't have internet resources back then!

If you'd like more info, reply to this post and I'll send you a PM with my email adress.

Cheers,
Jen

Hi Jen

We have a connection with Thomas Davy who came to Australia.
His son James Davy.  Never new of the surname Davy as he was known as Davis.

Hello!  I have no information on James, other than his birthyear, 1824, as the sixth child of Thomas and Harriet.  If you've read my previous posts, you'll see I am descended from James' youngest sibling, Mark.  I would love to add James' life to my database.  I am slowly building up a narrative on Thomas and Harriet's life, and then will move onto their children. 

I have a lot of detail on family which is centred on dates and places, but my interest now is on "putting flesh on the bones".  Any information on James and his descendants would be greatly appreciated.  I am willing to share my information, too.

Hope to hear from you soon.
