Janet Griffin <[email protected]> lives in ???. Her husband's 3x great grandfather was Daniel DAVENPORT who was born in Prestbury, Cheshire in about 1805.  He had two daughters, Lucy who was born about 1834 in Newbold Astbury or Congleton, Cheshire, and Catherine who was born about 1836 at Newbold Astbury or Radnor, Cheshire.  She don't know who their mother was, except that Daniel was widowed by the time of the 1861 census.  Lucy married John BOOTH in 1855 at Astbury and Catherine married George GRIFFITH(S) in 1862 at Brereton-cum-Smethwick, Cheshire.  Lucy and John's son, John, married Catherine and George's daughter, Elizabeth, at Brereton in 1889.  At the time of the 1861 census Lucy and John BOOTH were living at Davenport Lane, Brereton-cum-Smethwick.

Winifred Antonia DAVENPORT Auch <[email protected]> lives in Fort Washington, PA.
LINEAGE: "My father was Charles Harold Davenport, born in Exeter Devon. His father was Charles Agard Septimus Davenport born in Derby abt 1856.  Mother's name was Matilda Octavia Mason. Charles' father was Joseph LANCELOT Davenport born 1808 in Derby. Joseph Lancelot's father was Joseph Davenport, b.1779 - married to Sarah Walker -  both of Horseley, Derby
. Joseph Davenport's father was the Rev. Samuel Davenport who was married to Elizabeth Agard  (Agard a well-known name).  He was born 1751 in Leek Staffordshire. Rev. Samuel's father was the Rev. Thomas Davenport, married to Margaret LANCELOT. Rev. Thomas was born about 1722 in Siddington (Sithrington) Cheshire and Margaret Lancelot (wife) was born 1725 in Stoke-on-Trent,  Staffordshire. According to records at Oxford Rev. Thomas Davenport's father was also Thomas Davenport, Gentleman of Siddington (or Sithrington) Cheshire. The Wife's name may be Elizabeth Pillsbury, but this is not confirmed."

COMMENTS: "I am the first of my line to have immigrated to the US and thus am not familiar with the US Davenports. Rev. Samuel Davenport's brother was also a Minister of the Church but born in 1753.  (diff. date than that mentioned in your line). Am wondering whether the Lancelot name has any significance -  coming from the mother, Margaret Lancelot it was carried forward as a 2nd. (or first) name by some of the children. This is also the case with the AGARD name which has quite a history of its own. Other names in this line are Annable,  Harrison, Eeley, Walker, Radford, Mason, etc."
Geraldine Black <[email protected]> lives in Monticello, ME.  Her grandfather was Burtis DAVENPORT of Summerfield, New Brunswick, Canada.  At an early age he moved to Blaine, Maine. He had a sister named Maud and a brother named Judson. A second cousin named Zibe had a large family and he and his wife are buried in East Blaine with her grandfather and grandmother.  Geraldine has been told that Ezekial DAVENPORT was the first DAVENPORT to Canada.  She thinks that Fredricton was a relative to Burtis, but has no proof yet. 
David Lee Williams <[email protected]> lives in Waupun, WI.
LINEAGE: My gr gr grandfather was Thomas Dyer Davenport, born in England in 1805, died in 1852, where unknown, married to Thankful Patch of Wallingford, VT 13 Sept l830 in Claredon, VT. They had 10 children, all were born in New York state in and around Hoosick Falls, Little Falls, Utica and some in the Wallingford and Pawlet, VT areas. Great grandpa Davenport's name was Dewitt Clinton Davenport, born 12 Apr 1846 in North Hoosick, NY. He died in 1934 in Elgin, IL. I have information going forward but can find nothing going back from gg grandpa Thomas Dyer Davenport, such as his parents. His mother's maiden name could have been Dyer as in those days they gave the mother's maiden name to a son as a middle name, thus my fathers middle name of Le Roy "Davenport" Williams. Thomas Dyer is not buried by his wife Thankful here in Wisconsin, so it is my thinking that he died somewhere in the area where they were living at that time, possibly in the north Hoosick area.

COMMENTS: Their 10 children were Sarah Marion b.1833 Eugene Irvin b. 1837 Thaddeus Poliski b.1838 Robert Newton b.1843 Florence Almire b.1844 Frances Ann b.1832 David Thomas b.1841 DeWitt Clinton b. 1846 Elizabeth Alma b.1835 Arabella Sumpter b.1839.

Dale Charles DAVENPORT <[email protected]> lives in Frankston, Victoria, Australia.
LINEAGE: Dale Charles Davenport (Born 25.02.1979) son of Charles Clifford Davenport of Frankston, Victoria.

LINEAGE: "William Davenport born c 1885, and who died accordingly to an entry in a family bible in Middlesex, England, 19 Dec 1859 aged 64 he was my GT GT GT Grandfather. William was said to have been a Painter, Glazier and Gilder. William married Charlotte Head born in Sussex, c 1898/99 they had a large family of nine sons and two daughters from 1821- 1845. They lived most of their lives around Middlesex. Two sons migrated to Australia, John and then Richard (my line). Alfred Joined the Royal Navy, George was a Mathematical Instrument Maker. In 1869 when George was a widower, he married Eliza Wright at the Free English Church, Hackney, their home was 2 Tudor Grove, Hackney. When Charlotte died in 1880 her address was 4 Tudor Grove, Hackney, so it seems that the family were living here for a number of years. I have good photos of William and Charlotte and some of the children."

COMMENTS: "My father has been proven by the DNA project that he is descended from the Newberry Davenports. Does anyone have an English family tree from this line?"
