Free pass dated 26 May 1818, signed by Mrs Maria Rebecca Davison, née Duncan (1780? - 1858), actress and vocalist. [On 31 October 1812 she married James Davison.]  "She had a fine voice and a good knowledge of music, sang with much expression, and was in her day unequalled in such Scotch ballads as John Anderson and Roy's Wife. Her singing as the Marchioness Merida in the Travellers,  Drury Lane 13 May 1823, revealed powers almost fitting her for opera." (DNB)
