About The Davisons of Theodosia Street
Please sign in to see more.
In the early 1980's my mother completed an evening course called 'Tracing Your  Family Tree' and then set about doing just that.  She didn't have the advantage  of a computer and online resources and had to do everything the 'long' way  round.  After she died in 1999 I kept all her research notes (safely stored in  three carrier bags!)and about three years later got them out and went through  them.  And I have been hooked ever since!  So this site is dedicated to my  mother, Sheila Davison (nee Hassan) for setting me on the road of such a  fascinating, but not yet complete, journey.

In 1966 when my parents moved out of Theodosia Street, Elswick, it was the end  of an era.  For 65 years there had been Davisons in Theodosia Street.  My great  grandparents, William Davison and Isabella Thompson Morgan moved into no 21  shortly after it was built and were there at the time of the 1901 census, later  moving to no 9.  When my grandparents, Thomas Davison and May Laidlaw were  married, they moved into no 24, later moving to no 9.  My father and all his  siblings were born in Theodosia Street and when my grandmother died in 1961, my  father moved his own family back into Theodosia Street.

Although my family history is not just about the Davison family, this is why I  have chosen to call my family history website "The Davisons of Theodosia  Street".

I have just started to put information onto this site and still have an awful  lot more to do.  In fact my family history is far from complete so I hope to  add new information as and when I find it.

If anyone looking at this site links into my family, please feel free to  contact me.  I am always happy to share whatever information I may have, and am  always grateful to receive any new information anyone else may have.
