Davis family of Somerset

Davis family of Somerset

I am also doing research on a George Davis, b. bef. 1759, in Weston, Somerset, England. He married Martha, and they had a son Robert Davis, born either 1784 or 1794. I think George's parents may have been Basil and Ruth Davis, since there was a George Davis born in Somerset to Basil and Ruth in 1748. There was also a Basil Davis resident in Evercreech Parish, Somerset in 1786 at the age of 86. Do you, by any chance, have more information on the Davis's of that era?

Hi Maurice,

I found your interest in Robert Davis (Somerset)and Julia Guppy (Dorset) m1810,
I am also interested in this line. Robert and Julia had a daughter Elizabeth (their youngest I think) who married a Pitman (Somerset). This is my line, where do you stem from. Maybe we can compare notes.I look forward to hearing from you in anticipation.
Regards
Katie

My interest is in the son of Robert namely John DAVIS, born 4th November 1810, who married a Frances Kirby HODDER 25th December 1845, their daughter Emily Ann Davis married a John PEACH of Somerset, which is my line of research. If I can be of any further help, please let me know, kind regards from 'down under' Nelson, New Zealand, Maurice HAMSON...

Hi again Maurice, How exciting to meet you. I guess we are real distant cousins and of all things we both live in NZ and we never knew. I live in the Waikato in a small town called Ngatea not far from Thames or the Coromandel Peninsula.

my email address is genekate@xtra.co.nz maybe we could exchange info via emails instead of thru this web site.

I hadn't got the marriage for John so thank you for that.
he was born in Broadwinsor, Dorset, am I correct. Oops and I gave you the wrong info (I was doing it off my head) Elizabeth was the 5th child to Robert and Julia. She was born 08/04/1821 in Corscombe and married John Pitman 25/12/1843 in North Perrott, Somerset.They had 4 children. Unfortunatly he died 20/12/1850 in Beaminster and was buried in Misterton. Elizabeth went on to marry a John Cheetham 27/04/1857 in Misterton and had 2 more children to him. I think John Cheetham had been married before and had children to his first wife. Elizabeth had a sad life and died 22/11/1864 Crewkerne. She was a lace maker by trade.
Anyway, I am not sure what info you have so wont bore you with more. If I can help please let me know.
Regards to you too and look forward to hearing from you again.
Katie
