Here’s sightings for your Chief Constable … as John DAVIES and as John DAVIS, but no mention of any middle given name… and I still cannot see how you have determined the chap arriving in 1845 on the Elizabeth is confirmed as this Chief Constable…

Yes, and  likely at least one of those links were given by Ros on your other current thread ... but how do you link your chap back to the one in the title of this thread, John DAVIS, born abt 1820, son of James DAVIS, Spelsbury Parish ... 

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=795576.msg6524001#msg6524001

His 1901 dc should give you what the informant knew at that time as to 'how long in the colonies' and as that informant knew all those given names for John's dad, I think there's likely to be reliable info on that dc...
