Nathan Davies was the first member of the family to settle in Prince Edward Island. He was born in Pembrokeshire, South Wales in the early 1780's. He was educated at home by his father but, when young, went to London to his uncle George and commenced in his office as a lawyer. Not liking it, he was transferred to a merchant's firm and was subsequently sent to America in charge of merchandise. He was still living in 1829 when he was left a shilling in his father's will.
