      From the Wates Family Saga

      Reg. at Dr. Williams Library as was the custom of Protestant Dissenters, d. 1877 (42). 26.8.1859 m. Ebenezer Davis, 1836, at Parsons Hill Chapel. 11 Chn. (In 1851 Mary was living or staying with grandfather James in Woolwich, in 1859 she was a drapers assistant.)

      He was younger brother of Joseph Ward Davis, sons of Richard Davis and Elizabeth, nee Ward. He was a confidential clerk to S.R. Scott, Stratton and Scott, Stock and Share Brokers, Old Broad St. London. His father was a draper in Woolwich, but his partner ran away with the business when he was ill.

      He was a delightful father, good at telling stories and had the best, Welsh attributes. His daughters went to Mary's sisters school until they were 16 years. They were Baptists, a very united family living in Woolwich and Blackheath. He was one of the leading liberals of the district being one of Gladstone's chief supporters when he was M.P. for Greenwich.

      Mary lost her 3 last children in infancy, she dropped dead in the street (exhaustion?). She and the three infants were buried at Abbey Wood Cemetery. It is said that he wanted to marry one of Mary's sisters but she turned him down (maybe she had seen too much of the trials of the mothers of large families). 1881 he married Evangeline Grafftey and had six children by her, total 17 children. She was a great deal younger than he was.
