About Timothy Davis


Timothy joined the society of Friends and removed to Rochester, MA and is the ancestor of the Davis's in New Bedford and Rochester. Until the discovery of Samuel Davis's will this family was unable to trace their descent from Dolar.

The first child was born in Sandwich, MA. Though the birth dates of all his children are taken from the records of the Friends' Monthly Meeting of Sandwich, the births of the last two, Peace and Dorcas appear on the Rochester Vital Records, but probably all but the first child were born in Rochester.


This information comes from Dolor Davis A Sketch of his life with a record of his Earlier Descendants Written by Horace Davis Printed for private distribution 1881 page 34. Item 11.

11. Timothy Davis, Married March 7, 1690, to Sarah Daughter of Edward Perry; he was living 1718; 6 children; lived in Rochester, Mass.
