More from the second Barbara, married to Alan
Hello again, Elizabeth,
Firstly, there were many, many DAVEYS in St. Just-in-Penwith -
all knew one another, were possibly related to one another, attended the Methodist Chapel, lived in and near the same streets, and probably worked in the mines. My gt. grandfather was quite important in the mining scene in Victoria. My Emails go out under my husband's name Alan Gray, but my name is Barbara (confusing as your other contact is also Barbara.
Anyway, I've looked up my Thomas's parents -
father: Noah Davey , chr. 4 Nov. 1793, d. Apr. 1854. St. Just.
mother: Mary OATS, b. 1798, d.Dec. 1857, St. Just.
NOAH and MARY were married 16 May 1818, St. Just.
There were 10 children of the marriage.

1. Mary Davey b. 1818, d. 1906, B'rat. M. Richard TREMBATH.
2. Peggy Davey b.1820.
3. Noah Davey b. 1823 d. 1889, m.Mary WILLIAMS.
4. Richard Davey b. 1824, d. 1878 B'rat. M. Elizabeth HOCKING.
5. Michael Davey b. 1826, d. 1918 Vic.M. Margaret REYNOLDS.
6. William Davey b. 1826.
7. James Davey b. 1831, d.1899, Vic. M. Margaret O'MEALLY.
8. Charles Davey b. 1834, d. 1919 B'rat. M. Elizabeth LANYON.
9. Jane Oats Davey , b. 1835.
10. Thomas Davey b. 25 Mar. 1837, St.Just-in-Penwith, Cornwall. d. Maryborough, Vic. 1916.

I see you are interested in shipping arrivals - Thomas came to Australia (Melbourne) with his brothers Charles and Michael (and I think his sister Mary), on the "Marco Polo" arriving 1856.
Louisa THOMAS arrived on the "Conflict" in 1868.
I don't know if any of the above helps you fit in your THOMAS DAVEY, or just adds to the confusion.
Regards, Barbara Gray
