I have a complete brickwall with my Great Grandfather William John DAVIS -
I'm looking for his birth date and place and his marriage to Annie Elizabeth
Annie was born in Brighton, Sussex and her family moved to Devon and she is
with her father and siblings on the 1881 Census at 14 Coombe Road, West
Teignmouth. Her mother Jane died in 1878. Her father William was a Mariner.
1891 Census at 33 Prospect Place, Newton Abbott as Married and with my
grandmother Ruby aged 2 and her nephew Frank who she later adopted.
1901 Census 3 Western Terrace, Paignton - again only with her children.
Their children were born in:
Ruby Mary 1888 at 8 Quay Terrace, Newton
Kathleen Delphenia 1895 at 7 Cotford Terrace, Torquay - father Williams occ
is listed as Master Mariner and later in 1926 at his daughters marriage as
an Excise Officer.
They had nother child Roy born later in Devon.
It is not known if William John DAVIS was Devon born.
I would appreciate any help, or advice on where to go from here and am keen
to hear from any other's with DAVIS interests in the above areas.
Thanks in advance!
