Joseph "Joe" Davis was born at Low Pit Lane in Whitwell, Derbyshire, on 15 April 1901, and baptised on 9 May 1901. He was the eldest of the six children of coal-miner Fred Davis and his wife Ann-Eliza. Joe's brother Fred, who also became a professional snooker player, was the youngest of the six children. His father became a publican by the time Joe Davis was two years old. The family had moved to Whittington Moor, where the elder Fred Davis had taken over the management of the Travellers Rest pub. As a young child, Joe Davis was sent to live with his maternal grandparents Thomas and Sarah Clark who lived in Newbold, Derbyshire. Davis started playing English billiards at the age of eleven. From the age of 12 he took lessons from Ernest Rudge, a billiards player turned entrepreneur, who lived in Chesterfield and had recently opened a billiard hall in the town. The lessons took place at Rudge's private billiard room at the bottom of his garden. Davis would later manage billiard halls that were owned either by his family or by Rudge. He scored his first century break in billiards at the age of 12 in an exhibition game against J.D.Dickens.

Rudge arranged professional matches at his billiards hall in Chesterfield. In December 1913 a week long match was played at Chesterfield between the Australian billiards player George Gray, and Claude Falkiner from Featherstone. It went on in afternoon and evening sessions. Davis was allowed afternoons off from School to act as "spot boy" for this match. It also gave him the chance to view the technique of professionals. At one point during that week, Rudge asked Gray to give his opinion of Davis while watching him play. Gray played in a stance sighting with both eyes centrally over the cue, and the cue running in the middle of his chin. But because he could not focus with his right eye, and his left eye was stronger, Davis played sighting in a stance with his left eye along the cue, with his cue coming to rest just to the left of his chin. Gray said of Davis's technique: "The boy will never be a good player until he alters his sighting." Davis was at first despondent about Gray's comments. For some time Rudge tried to change the technique and stance of Davis to get him to play "two-eyed." But he found he could not play this way naturally, and the decision was made not to try and alter this natural aspect of his style.
