Nicholas Davis and his wife Sarah were living in Stepney, Middlesex, England at the time of the baptisms of their sons Nicholas and Joseph in 1620 and 1621, and they had a certificate from Stepney Parish when they enrolled on 22 Mar 1634/5 at London as passengers for New England on the Planter. Accompanying them were their son Joseph, aged 13, and ward William Lock, aged 6. It is likely that daughter Mary, who would have been about 9 at the time, was with them also.
      The occupation of Nicholas Davis in England was tailor. The first home of the Davis family in New England was in Charlestown, Massachusetts Bay Colony, where he held land and cow allotments. The family apparently moved to Woburn, Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1642, where the wife Sarah died in 1643. Nicholas Davis was remarried a few months later to Mrs. Elizabeth Isaac, probably the widow of Joseph Isaac. He sold his property in Woburn on 7 Jul 1648 to William Reade of Muddy River and probably moved to York, Maine at that time. He soon established himself as a tavern keeper in Lower Town where the main street leads to Stage Island. On 22 Nov 1652, Nicholas Davis was in the list of York men who submitted to Massachusetts government and were thus eligible for freemanship. He signed a 1662 petition from the inhabitants of York County to the Massachusetts Bay General Court regarding a jurisdictional dispute.
