About The DAVY/SNODDON/SOUTHERN Family Tree
Please sign in to see more.
The first member of the Davy family likely emmigrated from Britain to the 
Thirteen colonies early in the 1600's.  Thomas Davy, the first documented 
member of the family in North America, was born somewhere in the colonies in 
1670.  This branch of the Davy family is descended from his son Peter, born in 
1724.  Peter lived on the Mohawk River near the location of Little Falls, 
N.Y.  He was a United Empire Loyalist who fought on the side of the British 
during the American Revolutionary War.  After the war he immigrated to Upper 
Canada and is buried in Bath (formerly Ernestown), Ontario.

William and Alice Southern were born in Nottingham, England.  William's 
father, Charles, is listed as a butcher on William's birth certificate, but 
eventually he owned a profitable coal delivery business. Unfortunately,Charles 
Southern's fondness for the horses led to his losing the business when 
William was a young man.  William joined the militia as a member of the South 
Notts Hussars at the age of sixteen.  At age 18 he went to South Africa to 
fight in the Boer War but was invalided back home with malaria after a year 
and two months.  He remained with the South Notts Hussars for another nine years.  
Alice Flora Wilson, William's wife, left school at age thirteen to work in a lace 
factory.  She saved her money to purchase a sewing machine after which, she 
supplemented her living as a dressmaker.  William and Alice married in 1907 
and immigrated to Canada in April 1910. 

The patriarch of the Snoddon family in Canada, William Snoddon, and his wife, Ann, 
are thought to have come to Canada from York England in the mid 1830s.  Ann Snoddon's 
maiden name has come to us from various sources as Boland, Bolen, Bobland, Boleyne 
or Roldan.  A Snoddon cousin has told us of a story passed on to him telling of the 
Snoddons as boarder reivers or raiders in England.   I believe this translates as 
cattle thieves...most surely some other Snoddon family!
