I wonder if that is where this changing between Davies and Evans came from. If his mother's maiden name was Davies he may have decided to use that as well as Evans.

Thank you for going to so much trouble, according to the register he was born September 1890.
I was wondering about the possibility that it may be his mother's maiden name (either the Evans or the Davies).
I am considering working through my matches trees and see if there is a common ancestor between them and try and work forward. A bit of a task I know.
There are so many possibilities and one in particular could be promising but first I will need to get hold of someone who could work out the degrees of separation between myself and another lady, (If it's ever that simple)
Thank you so much once again.

Is that the 1939 Register where you saw the September 1890? I was going by what you said earlier about his wife being called Annie and came up with the December one.

Where was he living in 1939?

So could this be his birth record then?

Yes it could be him, I will research this further, there is also a David Davies b in 1890 that also is a possible.
Yes the d. o. b is September on the 1939 register. It does have something about him in the column at the end but cant quite make it out.
I will go and have a look at that information you have given me.
Thank you so much for all this.

I just tried to find that record on Ancestry for that Evans, John Davies but couldn't see it, may I ask where you saw it?

Would you mind telling me under what name he is in the 1939 and where and with whom he is living?  I may be able to decipher the bit you can't read.

If you mean the birth record, that was from the GRO website.

Thanks for the link.

He actually comes under his wife and sons. He in Wrexham with his wife Annie, sons  Joseph H, Patrick D and John Albert.
Thank you
