Our Maryland Heritage, Book 22: The Davis Families


The families surveyed in this work are not the descendants of a common ancestor. Although their origins can be traced back to several branches of an extended family tree, early connections are not readily apparent. Members of the Davis family are known to have arrived in America early in the Colonial period and in great numbers, both as free men and indentured servants. Thomas Davis (1613-1683) is reported to be the earliest American-born ancestor of at least one branch of the Davis families found in Montgomery County. He was the son of the original Davis immigrant, Captain James Davis (born c. 1575.) Chapters are included on Davis family members in Frederick County and Prince George’s County, as well as miscellaneous families and family members throughout the state of Maryland.
