I am a descendant of Job Davis, born in April of 1773 in Mecklenburg County Virginia. He arrived in Stanly County/prior Montgomery/prior Anson County, North Carolina in 1794 with Josiah and Mary Tillman Floyd. In several documents, a Thomas Marriott is mentioned, in several forms. In Job's will, he mentions a Teddy Marriott for reimbursment for what his sons Henry, James M and M F owe him. Job had 4 sons, Henry, James M, Edward Winfield and Marriott Freeman Davis (MF). In some documents, MF is shown as Marriott F Davis, in others as Merritt F Davis. As his wife was Sarah Winfield, her mother was Charlotte Freeman and her grandfather was Edward Winfield (also her nephew), family names were passed down the line. I believe Job's grandfather to be a Henry Davis and that he was a member of the Merritt/Marriott family as well, hence the name of this son. Any leads or information on Thomas or Teddy Marriott would be much appreciated.
