Our Davis ancestors have been traced to Wales, England. Davis is a popular Welsh surname. The name origin can be traced to the Davidson Clan in Scotland. The Scottish Davis family was a sept of the larger and powerful Davidson Clan. Today the Davis name is among the most numerous in England and Wales. This is due to the fact that there are so many variations of the name. Davis is a derivation of the name David, which means "well-beloved" — popular in Biblical days and a favorite among the Scottish kings. Davis was used to signify "son of David". Though of ancient standing in Wales, David hardly appears in England before the Norman Conquest (A.D. 1066). The spelling evolved in various forms, it has produced many family names such as Davis, Davidson, Davies, Daves, Dawson, Dawes, Day, Dakin, Davison, etc. The Irish form is M’Daid; the French, Devis. For several centuries the Davis clans lived mainly in Wales, and some in Northern Ireland, the present-day counties on the island of Ireland, which comprise Ulster. Most of the people of Great Britian, that is England, Scotland, Wales, and Ulster, and likewise the Davises, were and are of the Protestant faith. The Davises who came from the British Isles to America continued in the faith of their fathers, for the most part, though their descendants in this country today will be found in the memberships of practically all the various Protestant churches.

Penner, a Mennonite family name, has occurred frequently among Mennonites in East and West Prussia, Russia, and North America.  Records of the family have been found in the Marienburger Werder  in Poland as early as 1592.
