These Davys possessed large land holdings in New York, but all their possessions were confiscated after they pledged their loyalty to the Mother County. Peter and his family lived in New York State prior to the Amrican War of Independence. Apparently he did not emigrate to Upper Canada. Several of the children sympathized with the British in the American Revolution and fought with the British. It is believed the entire Davy family, with the exception of Peter, moved to Upper Canada after the war ended.
The children are Mary, Hannah, Elizabeth, Christina, Daniel, Henry, John, Michael, Peter Jr., Thomas and George.
