Davie Family

The Davie family appears here on the ‘Man & Other Family’ web site as the result of a series of marriages: Mary Davie married Henry Incledon;  their son John Incledon married Elizabeth Northcote;  their daughter Mary Incledon married Philip Rogers Webber;  their daughter Mary Webber married John Harris;  their son John Webber Harris married Louisa Ayton Desborough;  their daughter Louisa Mary Harris married Edward Desborough Man.

Thus Mary Davie is the direct ancestress of all those members of the Man family who are descended from Edward Desborough and Louisa Mary (Harris) Man, and there are a lot of those.
