Wow, thank you for your quick reply.
I only found your post a couple of days ago and I am a descendant of James Davis & Jane Morgan.

Unfortunately I don't have information back further than James.
But am happy to share info.
I've been trying to trace the Davis family for over 15 years.

Hi Davy family. Can anyone tell me please if there is a "Jonathan Davy" in this Devon branch, born circa 1740 - 1750. Father wither Robert or William. ?

Thanks Kindly.
MCD.

I have a Jonathan Davy (gggg grandfather) buried in Cardiff 1798 ..  but have suspicion he originated from Devon.

Hi, I am a descendant of James Davis and Jane Ellen Morgan. I have their death certs. both died in Dubbo Australia. Jane's parents are Henry Morgan (convict) and Marie(also known as Mary Ann) Pearce born in England, daughter of Thomas Pearce (convict)and Mary Stuart. James Davis death cert states that his father was George Davis, publican, mother unknown. making Thomas Davey and Harriett Tyler not his parents as I and others had thought. Any help with finding this George Davis would be wonderful. I am new to this site and finding it difficult to find my way around it!

No I don't believe so. I am a long descendant of Thomas Davis/Davy. My closer linage is that of Percy Augustus Davis and Percy Alexander Davis.

Hi apologies,  as I know this is an old post,  but contrary to popular opinion,  I fear the Thomas Davey (occupation Lighterman) who married Elizabeth Pile in 1796 is unlikely to be the Thomas Davy who found himself transported for life to Australia a few years later. 

The pardoned convict Thomas Davis who subsequently married Harriet Taylor in 1811 could only leave a mark on the parish registers. Where as 15 years earlier Thomas Davey the lighterman was able to sign his name on his wedding day.


Still, I most happy to proved wrong, if some one has documentary or DNA proof to connect the two. 

I myself am connected to Thomas and Elizabeth through their daughter Hannah who married William Hugh Henry Chesterman.  Would be very happy to see if any descendant of Thomas and Harriet is a DNA relation to me on Ancestry. Let me know.

.
Happy ancestor hunting everyone
