Arthur Davies was born in London, the son of Herbert Davies, F.R.C.P, and the grandson of Thomas Davies, F.R.C.P. He went to Charterhouse and Trinity College, Cambridge, for his education, and, after graduating in natural sciences in 1881, studied medicine at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital. He took the degree of M.B. in 1884 and then obtained junior posts in St. Bartholomew’s. For the greater part of his career he was associated with the Royal Hospital for Diseases of the Chest, which his grandfather and his father before him had served as physician, and with the Metropolitan Hospital. He succeeded his father as physician to the Bank of England and became physician (in London) to the Royal Ventnor Hospital. During the 1914-1918 War he was a member of the staff of the Hospital for Officers in Fishmongers’ Hall. In retirement he lived at Welwyn, where he died. He married in 1889 Alicia, daughter of Rev. Robert Irwin of Trinity College, Dublin, and had one son and one daughter.
