Arthur Davies was the husband of Sylvia Llewelyn, both close friends of J.M. Barrie, writer of Peter Pan. The Davieses' children, George, Jack, Peter, Michael, and Nico, were great inspiration to Barrie for his play, in particular George and Michael. Despite what the movie Finding Neverland would have you believe (what a terrible film), Arthur Davies was quite alive for some years after Barrie became acquainted with his family, but eventually died of cancer of the jaw.
