FAMILY : Message Board
Re: Davy Family Legends - maybe not!
Thanks for that last piece of info - I was looking for Edmund's parents, Robert Davy & Joan Marrack m 1708 Ludgvan. Could you tell me the source of this info?
However, regarding the relationship that so many claim to have, it is not impossible, though not directly, since we know that although Humphry b 1778 Ludgvan, married the heiress Jane (Kerr) Apreece 1841, they had no children. However, Edmund Davy (his father) m Grace 27-04-1744 Madron, and had seven children, 6 sons and one daughter,i.e. Richard b?, Robert b 1746 Penzance (m Grace Millett 16-09-1766 Madron), William b 1749 Penzance, Henry b? , Richard b 1745 Penzance, John b 1756 and Grace b? source: worldconnect.rootsweb.com.
This is probably where any supposed relationship to Sir Humphry originates - his siblings.
Sir Humphry's brother, Dr John Davy (1790-1868) b 1790 Ludgvan, m Margaret Fletcher, children: Archibald b 1838 and Grace b?(another possibility of relationship).
According to ancestry.com message boards (Barb)(message author), John Davy's first wife was Mary Ann Allen, from whom he had a son John and a daughter, Elizabeth. His first son, John moved to US and married Elizabeth Palmer, their children were William (deceased as an infant), John Vanburn, James Andrew, Amy and Mary Elizabeth. John Vanburn married Mary Thompson, had Lois Elizabeth (author's grandmother) -another possibility of relationship - US?
I must add that there appear to be some errors in Barb's message concerning the marriages of Humphry's sisters and his grandfather which need clarification.
I wish you all the best of luck in your search!
