  • Notes 
    • Christian's surname has been in doubt. In various secondary sources (IGI, LDS Ancestral files, web-based genealogical records, publications) it has been reported as Coffin, Coffer, Bellsire or unknown. With but one exception, no evidence has been provided. The exception is that Douglas Richardson provides the following basis for Bellsire, as reported in Sanborn's Second Supplement to Torrey's work: " ...I got the information from the Bishop's Transcripts for Chipping Sodbury, co. Gloucester. This appears to be the couple who immigrated to New England, as Thomas Davis himself originated from nearby Acton Turville, co. Gloucester. The name Bellsire (an alternative form of Belcher) is a common name in the area. I ordered several Bellsire wills but found nothing to connect them to Christian (Bellsire) Davis." [4]
