At first he called his press the Pitmedden Press, but afterwards dropped the name. He was succeeded by his son William who continued to reprint the chapbooks which were all stereotyped.

    Edinburgh 1542
    In his Rolment of Courtis (STS ed. v.1,71) Habakuk Bisset writes: 'In the zeir of god, ane thowsand, fywe hundreth, threttie twa zeirs: That ane callit, Thomas davidsone, ane northland man borne, on the wattirsyde of die, in scotland wes admittit his hienes prenttare.'. In the Exchequer Rolls for 1535, 1536 and 1538 there are entries for the payment of his salary; and he is called 'Prenter to the kingis nobyll grace' in the colophon of the Croniklis. The last record we possess of Davidson is a royal grant of the 6 March 1542, which gives the name of his wife, Margaret Harlaw. She lived until 1586, and a copy of her will survives, dated 17 June 1586. From this it appears that she had a son by Thomas Davidson, James Davidson, apothecary and Burgess of Edinburgh, and that after Thomas's death she had married James Sym, apothecary and Burgess of Edinburgh, whom she survived. Thomas Davidson used some of Peter Treveris's ornaments, and some of his own material passed to the printer John Scot by the year 1552.
