DAVIS INFO


Davis Surname
The Davis surname originated from the country of Wales.The earliest recording of the family name seems to be 1100.So we're talking welsh history and culture for background. Wales is a small country about 8000 square miles and has been inhibited as early as 250,000 BC.Temperate climent...not to hot, not to cold. Wales is a shock to the visitor.Without warning one may find themselves in areas where not only the dialects become incomprehensible,but where even the language itself has changed.Let it be known that one is now entering a new territory inhibited by a different people.

According to the bible,the jewish leader Jacob had 12 sons: Reuven,Shimon,Levi,Judah,Issachar,Zevulan,Dan,Naphtali,Gad,Asher,Joseph,and Benjaman. Each son became a father of a seperate tribe.Known as the 12 tribes of Isreal and they settled on both sides of the Jorden River. In 722 BC the Assyrians conqured Isreal and 10 tribes exited.The two remaining where Benjaman and Judah.Most Jews are believed to be of these tribes. The Welsh claim linage to one of these tribes and also linage to Noah of Noah's ark. Check out Judism. My guess on which tribe would be Benjaman.

Rev.R.W.Morgan had no doubt the welsh were desendents of Japhet who was the eldest son of Noah.
