The Rev. John Davenport was born in Coventry, England in 1597, the grandson of Edward Davenport of Coventry. He left his homeland due to a dispute with the church and arrived in Salem, Massachusetts aboard the Hector in 1637. He was one of the founders of of New Haven, Connecticut and Yale University.  He married Elizabeth Wooley and had a son John. The Rev. John Davenport died in Boston, Massachusetts in 1670.  Many of John's descendants settled in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York. There is very good documentation linking this line to Edward Davenport of Coventry and through him the Davenports of Henbury.
