John Morgan Davies, the son of Robert and Agnes Davies, was born on 31st July 1903 in St Ives, Cornwall, United Kingdom. His father had died in 1910.

He was rescued from the sinking Titanic in a lifeboat with his mother; it is suggested that the lifeboat was Lifeboat 14. Maude Sincock, their family friend, was also saved.

His brother, Joseph Charles Nicholls, died in the sinking.

He was eventually married to Leona Uren (born in 1911). They divorced in November 1951, which is said to have caused John Morgan Davies to commit suicide by taking an overdose of barbiturates.
