Christoffel Davids, also called Kit Davitsz and other name variants, was a native of England who settled in New Netherland, where he was first recorded in 1638. His birth year is calculated to be 1616, based on his statement on 3 September 1658 that he was 42 years of age and was born in England.<ref>A. J. F.

In ''Immigrant Ancestors a List of 2,500 Immigrants to America before 1750'', Frederick Adams Virkus called him Capt.
