Davis Surname

DAVIS is a Welsh surname, and the family is among the most numerous in England and Wales due to the many variations of the name. The original name was “David” which means well-beloved and was popular in Biblical days and a favorite among the Scottish kings.

My early DAVIS family members migrated from Wales, England, and Scotland.  Most landed near Portsmouth, Virginia and eventually settled in southern Granville County, NC.
