Davidson family, Tambo Crossing, Eve Langley
« on: Thursday 06 September 18 01:23 BST (UK) »
Hi, I'm looking for relatives, stories & connections to the Davidson family who once owned & ran the King's Arms Hotel at Tambo Crossing, Gippsland, Victoria.
Thomas Davidson was born in 1836; the 3rd child of John & Martha Davidson of 76 George St, Dunoon, Scotland.
Thomas emigrated to Australia, married Jane Flood & they had 9 children together from 1856 to 1881: Amandie, Marion, Jane (d. infant), Charles William (d. infant), Charles, Mira, Amour, James, William.
Some of the boys inherited the hotel, whilst the other children were overlooked.
The hotel burned down in 1961, having being sold to a corporation sometime previously.
Mira/Myra/Mia married Arthur Langley & they had two daughters, who were known as Eve & June.

A very warm welcome to Rootschat.
Have you yet checked Australian newspapers?  https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/search?adv=y

Had a quick look. First item checked was in the Weekly Times, 20 Nov 1897 re. a Charles Davidson, owner of the Walter Scott Hotel at Gippsland. Possibly related?

Best of luck with the search.

Aberavon - Hopkin/s, Jenkins, Thomas
St. Brides/Wick - Jenkins
Llanblethian -  Price
Abergwynfi -  Han(d)ford

The Gippsland Independent, 24 Dec 1915, carries an item about a Thomas Davidson, King's Arms Hotel, Neerim South.

Co-incidence?

Here is NSW BDM https://familyhistory.bdm.nsw.gov.au/lifelink/familyhistory/search?41 and here is Victoria BDM https://online.justice.vic.gov.au/bdm/indexsearch.doj
Both are free to search and can use wildcards.

From electoral rolls
Arthur Alexander LANGLEY and Myra LANGLEY are in Forbes NSW in 1913 where Arthur is a blacksmith.
Possibly Arthur died in NSW in 1915.

Myra LANGLEY is a hotel-keeper in Neerim South in Victoria in 1914,1915,1917  ( Arthur not with her)

Possible second marriage for Myra in Victoria in 1916 to Patrick CULLEN
