Leslie’s directory for Perth and Perthshire, 1885, page 316; http://deriv.nls.uk/dcn30/8569/85697858.30.jpg

In the late 1880s, the Davis family came to British Columbia. They lived on Vancouver Island, near Nanaimo.

In 1897, John became the vicar at Sapperton and Ladner.

In 1902, John and Florence moved to Vancouver.

Florence died in Vancouver on December 20, 1903. She was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

It appears that John went back to England. He died before 1923, when his son Ian was married in Vancouver.

John and Florence had the following children.

 

Ian Gordon Davis

Ian Gordon Davis was born in Scotland (possibly Aberfeldy), on December 15, 1879.

On September 20, 1923, in Vancouver, he married Elsie Victoria Cooksley. She was born on October 27, 1897, in Birtle, Manitoba. Her father was William Cooksley. Her mother was Jane Elizabeth Scavington

Ian died in White Rock, British Columbia, on June 16, 1959.

Elsie died in Vancouver on April 3, 1987.

Ian and Elsie had a son named Beverly Ian Davis.

 

John Gordon Davis

John Gordon Davis was born in Aberfeldy, Scotland, on December 15, 1882.

No further information is available for him.

 

Florence Edith Davis

Florence Edith Davis was born in Aberfeldy, Scotland, on December 19, 1883.

Basil later became the manager of the law firm of Robertson, Douglas and Symes. He died in West Vancouver on January 17, 1940.

It is not clear what happened to Florence. There is a Florence Edith Jayne who is buried in Portumna, Galway, Ireland. The cemetery records state that she was born on December 19, 1881, and that she died on February 12, 1970. It is not certain that this is the same person.

Basil and Florence had the following children: Francis Basil Jayne (1906-1906); and Charles Basil Jayne (1911-1989).

 

Gavin Hardwick Davis

Gavin Hardwick Davis was born in Aberfeldy, Scotland, on January 16, 1885 (one source says 1881).

In 1911, he was living in Vancouver and working as an office clerk. He later worked as a broker.

In September 1914, he enlisted with the Canadian Expeditionary Force to serve during the First World War.

He later became a mining engineer.

Probably in the 1940s, he married Marguerite McGraw, who was a school teacher. She was born in Pueblo, Colorado, on December 1, 1895. Her parents were Robert and Ellen McGraw.

Marguerite died in Powell River, British Columbia, on August 3, 1949.

Gavin died in Victoria, British Columbia, on April 26, 1978.

 

Winnifred Davis

Winnifred Davis was born in Aberfeldy, Scotland, on January 12, 1886.

On August 2, 1905, in Vancouver, she married Edward Howard Howard-Gibbon, who was a transportation agent. He was born on September 14, 1881, in Penetanguishine, Ontario. His father was Charles Stewart Gibbon. His mother was Florence Lambe.

This marriage ended in divorce. (Edward later married Elizabeth Edith Stephen. Edward died in Williams Lake, British Columbia, on November 25, 1963. Elizabeth died in Williams Lake on February 17, 1978.)

On March 4, 1920, in Vancouver, Winnifred married Arthur Holmes Pigott, who was the manager of Victoria Vancouver Stevedoring Company. He was born on May 16, 1868, in Liverpool, England. His father was John Pigott. His mother was Mary Jane Waters. Arthur died in Saanich, British Columbia on April 15, 1932. Winifred died in Saanich on April 6, 1967.
