Havilah Davis [ 1842 (Approx.) - ]

The 1871 census lists “Hevilah” Davis as a 29 year-old, English-born wheelwright. He first appears in Fuller’s Counties of Peterborough and Victoria in the mid 1860s. Davis completed the census of Fenelon Falls for the Victoria County Council in [May] 1874, in anticipation of By-Law (No. 161) [passed 5 June 1874] incorporating Fenelon Falls into a Village. He may also be the same H. Davis who opened a store “in the dry goods and grocery line” at “Burley’s Corner” in 1877 [CP 27 July 1877; 3]. The General Store disappears from D&B after 1880.

Variant spelling: Hevilah Davis, Havelock
