    Recorded in the spellings of Davis, Davies, Davie, Davy, and others, this is a patronymic surname of Hebrew origins, and much associated with Wales. It means 'the son of David', from the Hebrew male given name meaning "beloved". The name is not recorded in any part of Britain before the Norman Conquest of 1066, and is regarded as being a 'Crusader' introduction. In the 12th century all the parts of Christendom joined in expeditions to free the Holy Land from the infidel. Although all the crusades were militarily unsuccessful, and have remained so to this day, the returning soldiers 'adopted' certain biblical and Greek names, of which David was one, and gave them to their children, particularly their sons. Amongst the very earliest recordings of the given name predating the surnames is that of 'Dauid clericus', (David, the clerk), in the rolls of the county of Lincoln for the year 1150, whilst Richard Davy appears in the Subsidy rolls of Worcester for the year 1275. Further examples include Thomas Dayson in the 1327 Pipe Rolls of Yorkshire, and Richard Davys is listed in the Register of the Freemen of the City of York for the year 1402. An interesting bearer of the name was Sir Thomas Davies (1631 - 1680), a bookseller, who became master of the Stationer's Guild in 1668 and was Lord Mayor of London in 1666, during the Great Fire of London. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of John Dauisse, which was dated 1327, in the Subsidy Rolls of the county of Cambridgeshire, during the reign of King Edward 111, known as "The Father of the Navy", 1327 - 1377. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.

    • The Oconomowoc Enterprise: Sept 1, 1911
      Peter Davy died at his home in Pipersville, Sunday, Aug 27, 1911, age 92 years. Deceased was born in Bath, Ontario, Nov 18, 1819. Mr. Davy and his bride came to Wisconsin in 1844, where they resided until Mrs. Davy's death. Fifteen years ago he married Mrs. Elizabeth Porry and then moved to Pipersville, where he spent the remaining years of his life.
      The deceased was one of the first pioneers of the town of Ashippun which at that time was practically a wilderness, and was the Father of the first white child born in the town. Like the majority of the old settlers he came here nearly penniless but deeded from the government eighty Acres of land, hiring the money with interest at 25 per cent. He was the first man to import Galloway cattle west of the Great Lakes and in 1881 went to Glasgow and Edinburg, Scotland, where he purchased additional cattle and Norman horses.
      Mr. Davy was a man of sterling character, possessing determination possible of accomplishing things, a strong physical constitution fostered by clean living. A man who though not a college graduate was educated in that he respected and advocated but lived up to. Deceased is survived by his Wife and six children: Bert of Ashippun; George of Santa Barbara, Ca; Annie of Omro; Mary of Hartford; Nell of Wausau; and Jennie of Kansas City, Mo; fourteen grandchildren and twelve great grandchildren.
      Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon front the home of Bert Davy in Ashippun. Rev. Varney officiating and interment being in the town Cemetery.
