McDavid, Davisson, Davison, Davidson

  of 248

Malcolm McDavid
Born c. 1534 Dingwall, Scotland

Nicholas Davison
Born 1560 Dingwall, Scotland Died 1636

Nicholas Davison
Born 1611 London or Lynn, England
Married Joan Hodges (born 1615 in Charlestown, Mass.) Charlestown, Mass.
Died 1664 Charlestown, Mass.

John Davidson
Born 1645 Aryeshire, Scotland
Married Grissell Crawford (born 1650 in Aryeshire, Scotland)

John Davidson
Born 1674 Ulster, North Ireland
Married Janes Morrison (born 1679 in Ireland) 1698 in Ireland

(not really sure here; either William is the son of John and Janes, and the father of Samuel, or Samuel is the son of John and Janes, and the father of Daniel. Samuel seems to be married to Margaret Maner, and he is sometimes the father of James Davidson, who could also be the father of Daniel Davidson)

Pvt. Daniel Davidson
+ Margaret Cope Miller

John Madison Davidson
+ Elizabeth Smith

James A. Davidson Tabitha Davidson
+ Rachel Allen Noble + Reuben Baker

Samuel Davidson Nancy Ann Davidson Andrew Baker
+ Mary Martin + John S. Spurlock + Jane Gilbert

Levi Spurlock + Tobitha Baker

David White Davidson + Nannie Spurlock

(a short recap of lineage)

Nicholas + Joan Hodges
John + Grissell Crawford
John + Janes Morrison
Samuel or William
(Samuel + Margaret Maner)
James or Samuel
Daniel + Margaret Cope Miller
John Madison + Elizabeth Smith
James A. + Rachel Allen Noble
Samuel + Mary Martin
David + Nannie Spurlock

John Davidson and Janes (Janes is probably not Janes Morrison; there is another set of descendants of the Scottish Davidsons with these names that arenít directly connected with my ancestors)

Nicholas Davisson and Joan Hodges (or Miller) donít quite connect with John Davidson and Grissell Crawford; Nicholas went from Scotland to Lynn, England (which doesnít seem to be a real place, unless it is either meant to be Kings Lynn, England, or London, England), and from Lynn, England to Charlestown, Massachusetts. It is hard to tell whether or not he marries Joan or Joanna in England or in Massachusetts, but either way, they end up in the colonies, while John Davidson and Grissell Crawford are born in Ayrshire, Scotland, and their son, John Davidson, along with his wife Jane or Janes are born in Ulster, Northern Ireland. It is possible that Nicholas and Joan came over to America without their son, but it seems strange that he and his family are put in Scotland and Ireland, while Nicholas left Scotland early on and did not go to Ireland. Nicholas did have a brother named John, and he isnít accounted for, so he could be the father of the first John, but there is no proof.

The Davidsons seem to move to these places in chronological order;

Dingwall, Scotland
Lynn, England
Charlestown, Massachusetts
Ayrshire, Scotland
Ulster, Northern Ireland
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Henrico County, Virginia
Augusta and Orange Counties, Virginia
Albemarle County, Virginia
Russell County, Virginia
Moccasin Creek, Washington County, Virginia
Abingdon, Washington County, Virginia
Scott County, Virginia
Tazewell County, Virginia
Perry County, Kentucky
Clay County, Kentucky

If anyone can help with corrections or extra information about the Davidsons, I would appreciate it.
