We have no knowledge of what type of relationship Agnes and Daniel had, only that they produced a son.We have learnt recently that Daniel had not passed on this information to his children from his marriage to Isabella, or if he did it was kept hidden.I have a copy of Peter's birth certificate.Peter Mutch Davidson died 26 Nov 1935, Christchurch, NZ."
