I am the great-great grandaughter of James Davy.
My Great Grandfather was James' son Isaac. I am researching my family tree and have more information if you wish. I realize your post was years ago, but hopefully, you will receive this.
Regards, Jane Davy

I just wondered if you had a Patrick in your tree?

It is a very long shot because Patrick my gt grandfather (born about 1846, in "Ireland") ie is almost impossible to find unless by a fluke.

He appears to have gone to Loanhead, near Edinburgh and married Annie Scott also from "Ireland" when he was c 18 and she was c 13. There are Scott and Davy families in both Co Sligo and Co Down but they could have come from anywhere - possibly a run away marriage? They moved to Durham where their three daughters were born and died there - alas Patrick before the 1911 census and by then Annie claimed to have been born in Durham. (There is no record here that I can find that ties up with her birth, there).
Best wishes, Liz

I'm sorry Liz but there is no Patrick in my Davy lineage.
All of the family I am researching is from Niagara Falls, NY and most of the heirs were sons. James Davy did come from Sligo Co. The one I am related to had sons James,Jr., Isaac,& Abraham that I am aware of. Isaac Davy was my great, great grandfather.
Wish I could be of more help.
Jane

Thank you - I appreciate the response!

County Down Scott/Davy rather than Co. Sligo may link up with coal miners being recruited by Lord Londonderry to break strikes at his coal mines in Co. Durham, England but being able to rule out other families may eventually help me find mine!
