Hallo
-I am researching the Davy family from Norfolk England
- an old aunt said that we were related to Sir Humphrey Davy - there seems to be a slim threat of interest in science and engineering which runs in our veins -not that that means much!

Parts of this family go back to the 1500's in Norfolk
Does anyone out there have any info - or a tree they might share please - thanks - Anne

If your family is from Norfolk , then you are almost definitely not related to Sir Humphrey Davy . He was born about 1799 in Penzance , Cornwall where there was a very strong Davy presence . The Davy/Davey families had also been very strong in Norfolk and Suffolk since the 1300s
