Davies Name Meaning and HistoryWelsh and English: patronymic from the personal name Davy (Welsh Dafydd, Dewi), a pet form of David. Dictionary of American Family Names, Oxford University Press, ISBN Name Meaning and HistoryRecorded in the spellings of Davis, Davies, Davie, and several others, this is an English patronymic surname, although much associated with Wales. It means ‘the son of David’, from the Hebrew male given name meaning “beloved”. The name is not recorded in any part of Britain before the Norman Conquest of 1066, and is regarded as being a ‘Crusader’ introduction. In the 12th century all the parts of Christendom joined in expeditions to free the Holy Land from the infidel. Although all the crusades were militarily unsuccessful, and have remained so to this day, the returning soldiers ‘adopted’ certain biblical and Greek names, of which David was one, and gave them to their children, particularly their sons. Amongst the very earliest recordings of the given name predating the surnames is that of ‘Dauid clericus’, (David, the clerk), in the rolls of the county of Lincoln for the year 1150, whilst Richard Davy appears in the Subsidy rolls of Worcester for the year 1275. Further examples include Thomas Dayson in the 1327 Pipe Rolls of Yorkshire, and Richard Davys is listed in the Register of the Freemen of the City of York for the year 1402. An interesting bearer of the name was Sir Thomas Davies (1631 – 1680), a bookseller, who became master of the Stationer’s Guild in 1668 and was Lord Mayor of London in 1666, during the Great Fire of London. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of John Dauisse, which was dated 1327, in the Subsidy Rolls of the county of Cambridgeshire, during the reign of King Edward 111, known as “The Father of the Navy”, 1327 – 1377. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to “develop” often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling. © Copyright: Name Origin Research 1980 – 2010Read more: Name Meaning and HistoryThe surname of DAVIES was a baptismal name ‘the son of David’ from the nickname Davy. An ancient Welsh personal name. Early records mention Richard Davi, who was documented in 1273, County Somerset. William Davy, was recorded in Oxfordshire in the same year and Johannes Dauyson of Yorkshire, was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. John Davyson married Elizabeth Bella at St. George’s, Hanover Square, London in 1526. The name has been perennially popular in honour of the biblical king of the name, the greatest of early kings of Israel, and led to this being a given name throughout Europe in the Middle Ages. Its popularity increased in Britain firstly by virtue of its being the name of the patron saint of Wales (about which very little is known); he was probably a 6th century monk and bishop, and secondly because it was borne by two kings of Scotland (David I reigned 1124-53 and David II 1329-71). Its popularity in Russia is largely due to the fact that this was the church name adopted by St. Gleb (died.1015) one of the two sons of Vladimir, duke of Muscovy, who were martyred for their Christian zeal. At first the coat of arms was a practical matter which served a function on the battlefield and in tournaments. With his helmet covering his face, and armour encasing the knight from head to foot, the only means of identification for his followers, was the insignia painted on his shield and embroidered on his surcoat, the flowing and draped garment worn over the armour. In many parts of central and western Europe, hereditary surnames began to become fixed at around the 12th century, and have developed and changed slowly over the years. As society became more complex, and such matters as the management of tenure, and in particular the collection of taxes were delegated to special functionaries, it became imperative to distinguish a more complex system of nomenclature to differentiate one individual from another. The associated arms are recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in 1884. surname Davies is English or Welsh, meaning ‘son of david’, derived from the Hebrew male given name David, meaning “beloved.”

Davies resumes light training with Sochaux? Left rehab I believe Wednesday to join his Club Sochaux. So far he’s doing great. I hope he returns soon and looks like he might be ready on time to for the World Cup! Hopefully he returns sometime next month and Bradley takes him to South Africa on the World Cup squad roster.Source: Do you think Davies will make it into the World Cup Squad for South Africa 2010.
Im so happy for him. The fact that he is still alive is amazing, the fact that he will play again makes it a great story. He will be ready for the WC dont you worry about that. Hes apparently been doing light training for a while and fitness wont be a problem, just needs minutes to be to his old self again. Q: Honestly he will make it. Partly because of his own merit, but the other part because the U.S. doesnt have a worthy replacement for him. I mean only reason Findley was starting was because he was fast, but he obviously doesnt possess the same class that Davies possessed. Altidore doesnt have a partner up top, and you cant put Dempsey or Donovan with him because they are dangerous on the wings. Davies is the perfect compliment to Altidore, not findley, not Conor Casey.
