red mail Samuel Samson DAVIS, gunlock maker of London
My ancestor Samuel Samson Davis, a gunlock maker of Aldgate, London has been on my most wanted list for over 20 years. I have gathered much information on his marriage, children, occupational life, and burial, but can't find anything of his origins (birth, baptism, parentage). I have researched all the known baptisms for Samuel/Samson DAVIS but cannot confirm the correct one. KNOWN FACTS Born approximately 1781, probably in London. (from age at burial). 1803 marriage to Betty HOLBROOK at St James, Paddington, London stating he was of this parish. 1804 1st son Samuel born Prescot Street, Whitechapel, baptised St Mary Whitechapel. 1805 1818 worked Tower of London, living at 4 Upper East Smithfield, Aldgate. 1807 2nd son Joseph born Butlers Buildings, East Smithfield, baptised St Botolph, Aldgate 1809 - 1832 Butlers Buildings/4 Upper East Smithfield, Aldgate. 1832 death & burial 4 Upper East Smithfield, buried at St Botolph, Aldgate. Samuel had a sister Ann (died 1840) who married James Keech a chemist of Deptford, Kent (1796-1846) at St Dunstan's, Stepney on 24 July 1823. No children found. (Ann was mentioned in Samuel's will of 1832 naming her as a guardian of his surviving 9 children). Samuel and Betty's children were Samuel 1804, Joseph 1807, Sarah 1809, Elizabeth 1811, Ann 1813, Catherine 1814, Mary 1816, Samson 1818, and John 1821. I am descended from their third son, Dr Samson Davis who immigrated with his family to Melbourne, Australia in 1852. RESEARCH CONDUCTED Trade & post office directories, taxation records, death duties, occupational records (apprenticeship, guild, freedom, trade, company, Tower staff records, board of ordnance), patents, newspapers, obituaries, magazines, property, insurance, will, burial, marriage, baptism of all children. Checked Paddington St James baptisms and marriages (for his own and his parents) Checked all London wills of Samuel and Samson DAVIS in case they were his father all ruled out! Any advice on where else to look for his origins would be greatly appreciated!!! Michelle, Australia
