John and Margaret had fourteen children, although many did not survive childhood:

  1. Sarah Jane Davies born about 1856 in Widnes, date of death unknown.
  2. William Davies born about 1858 in Runcorn, married Elizabeth Worrall in 1876 and died in 1885. Age 27
  3. Mary Elizabeth Davies born in 1859 in Runcorn and had two children out of wedlock: Alice Maud Davies, born in 1878; and Walter Davies born one month before she married William Cockcroft in 1879. Both children went by the name of Cockcroft. Walter must have died because she later adopted her sister, Amelia's son and called him Walter too.
