Research Notes

LDS in spite of the age gap both children's christenings clearly name Dorothy Prewitt as the mother. John Davyes christening record looks like a guess from burial info, ie no parents, Wint Earls probably based on where he died. Dorothy Prewett's Christening only nominates her father


The extensive Davis genealogy  back to the sixteenth century has been obtained from  FamilySearch, the Latter Day Saints site.
This was complemented by data from  Robyn Lanham and Louise Cunningham
