Abraham Davis was born in Bisley 1794 his wife was Elizabeth, and they had three children John, Sarah and Richard. Richard moved to London, married, and I am descended from him. Abraham lived at various times in Eastcombe, Bisley, Rodborough where on the 29th september 1851 he accidentally fell in the canal and drowned. After that his wife Elizabeth lived at Chalford Hill. Can anyone find a connection here. Jim

I am descended from Theyer Spring Davis of Bisley. His daughter was Rosanna Davis who moved to London and married a Baxter. Her mother was Mary Ann nee Habgood and comes from the Habgoods of Latton Glouc. Theyer was a miller but the family disappear from the cencus returns in the mid 19th cent as there was an error and the family was recorded as Darius. I am doing this from memiry. If you require any more accurate info, give me a shout.

Hello Fraser, I am descended from Arthur Ephraim Davis, Theyer's brother. I have a family tree for both brothers and some of their descendants, if you are interested. Also I am trying to find Arthur and Theyer's great great grandfather circa 1730. Regards, Stephen Davis.
