James Davis, eldest son of George Davys FitzRichard (1703-1767), married Frances, daughter of George Taaffe of Strokestown and settled at Martinstown in the latter half of the 18th century. Their son George lived at Martinstown and later at Lissadorn. Their daughter Mary married Patrick Browne of Cloonfad.
