UPDATE [4 JAN 2002 from Mary]

LINEAGE: My lineage start with John Davenport born about 1585. His son John was born 4/11/1605 in London, England. John the son, married Mary Hunt in 1635 in Barbados, West Indies. This information came from Supplement No. 1 of the book "Thomas Davenport and His Descendants" Published by the Putnam County Historical Society in the fall of 1963. Here is what it says.

"John Davenport the grandfather of Thomas the Pioneer.
Baptismal records show that John Davenport, son of John (who would be the great-grandfather of the Pioneer), was baptized the 11th day of April, 1605, at St. Margaret's Parish Church, in the Borough of Barking, Essex county England. It is also recorded that John Davenport sailed from Gravesend Dock, England to Barbados Island, on the ship "Expedition", carrying 205 passengers, in 1635-his age was 30. Gravesend Dock is about 18 miles from the church where he was baptized. In Barbados, John married Mary Hunt, daughter of Henry Hunt, also in Barbados and about 1670 , they arrived in Westchester County. N.Y."

This was submitted by Mrs. Zora Calhoun Parks

COMMENTS: There seem to be a lot of confusion as to whether Humphrey and John are related. Both were in Barbados. I don't believe they were related.

My paternal grandmother was Gwendolyn Gertrude Davenport, dau. of Joseph Vernon Davenport & Bessie Foster. PaPort as we called him was the son of Stephen Pierce Davenport & Susan Jane George. He was the son of Joseph A. Davenport & Lucy A. Carter m:21 Jan 1831 in Halifax Co., VA. He was the son of James A. Davenport b:ca 1805 & Jane "Jinsey" Hart b: 1800 Charlotte Co., VA. Stephen supposedly was born in Halifax Co., VA. He & Susan left either VA or NC and headed north in a covered wagon around 1880. They had a couple of children by then and lost one along the way. The rest were born in Howard Co., IN where they settled and lived the rest of their lives.
COMMENTS: I put other as I do not know if I am connected to any of these lines. I have tried unsuccessfully to research further back, but so far have been defeated. I am currently stuck on Susan Jane George, Stephen's wife. I have tried through the George name, so I thought I would try the spousal route. But any additional info is always greatly appreciated.

The only hard evidence I have is the 1860 census showing SC. If there is anyone who knows this John Davenport, I would very much appreciate hearing from them.

Leonard Valure Jr. <valure@cinemagnetics.com> lives in Bedford Hills, NY.
LINEAGE: My paternal grandmother was Esther Davenport (1920-1993), wife of Joseph Valure. They lived in Rockland County, NY.

Her parents were Fowler Davenport and Laura [Hunt] Davenport, both born around 1885, and residents of Tuxedo, NY. Fowler had two brothers - Edward Jr. and Orville.

Fowler's parents were Edward Sr. (born around 1850) and Hannah, of Vernon, Sussex, NJ.

Edward Sr.'s parents were Abram Davenport [Devenport] (born around 1812)and Catherine [Parliman] Davenport (born around 1824). They had 10 children.

Ancestry.com had a listing that Abram was son of Abraham, son of Nathaniel, son of Humphrey #3, but with no documentation to back that up. The email of the person who made that connection is also defunct. So as far as I know, we're descended from Humphrey of Barbados, but I don't know for sure without some help.

COMMENTS: I suppose I could be placed in Descendants of Humphrey, but I really don't know.

DAVENPORT line. I do have a lot on my mother's side (Nalley) back to the early 1600's. I'm interested in tracing the DAVENPORT line as far back as possible. Contact me if any of this looks familiar. I do have lists of DAVENPORT children from these lines.

LINEAGE: My particular
DAVENPORT were not among the colonists - my grandfather came to the USA from England in 1911 - this was Stanley Jennens DAVENPORT .

I have the family well documented back to a William DAVENPORT who married Mary Jennens, and it is from this point forward that the Jennens name appears in subsequent generations. I am trying to get further back than William and have had no luck.  All information would be British.

The genealogy I have is:

William DAVENPORT (b.1791) / Mary Jennens (b.1790) md St. Edburghs, Yardley (UK) 1816
- Abel Jennens
DAVENPORT
-- Abel Jennens
DAVENPORT
--- Stanley Jennens
DAVENPORT
---- Ernest J.
DAVENPORT (my father, first to be born in US)
----- me

Any info, insights or ideas - very much appreciated.  I don't know which descendents group to be placed in, because of lack of further genealogical information.

LINEAGE: My father was James Wayne
DAVENPORT, born at home in Hawkins Co. TN in the late 1930's. His mother was Ona. I was always told that Ona was Cherokee. He married my mother, Betty Ruth Mowell of Kingsport, TN, when she was only 14 in 1959. I know that he was enlisted during the Korean War because when he died from being hit by a car in Chicago in the early 70's, I received his benefits.

COMMENTS: Tried to trace my grandmother Ona's Cherokee lineage on the Eastern Rolls. Very frustrating, but interesting.

Census records say Benjamin was born in RI Dec. 1, 1834.  I could find no records except a B. F Davenport born to Lewis Richmond Davenport and Theodosia nee Parker on 1 Dec, 1833. This Benjamin had a brother Lewis Richmond Davenport born
1 Feb 1830 and a sister Mary Jane b. Jan 1831 Family names of Louis (M) and Louie (F) run in the family.  Directories show a Louis E. Davenport living with the family in 1890-91.  Any help with this line?

COMMENTS: I know there was a Lewis Benedict Davenport b 1816 d 1836 and a female named Lewis Davenport b. 1803 d. 1872, but cannot trace any direct lineage.   Lewis Benedict Davenport also had a sister named Mary Jane d. 1836.  Could Lewis Richmond Davenport updated his name to Louis and changed the Richmond (post civil war?) to the E.?

Diana Miller Sheek <dianasheek@rocketmail.com> lives in Middletown, OH.
LINEAGE: My grandfather was George Holt. His parents were Loretta Davenport and George Holt. I have found a lot on the this Davenport line through Loretta's father. Her mother was Martha Lucas. I need more Holt information. There is another Davenport Line that I cannot find more information: Willima Holt and Elvira Davenport. All I know is that Elvira's father is Alex P. Davenport and her mother is Mary L. Crutchfield. The dates would be between the early 1900's back through the 1800's. I believe Alex served in the military during the Civil War. Loretta's Davenport side goes a long way back to royalty. I am also looking for any American Indian heritage in the Spencer, Adkins line with Clevenger.

COMMENTS: Any information would be helpful especially on Alex Davenport. I could also use information on the Miller family. One of my great grandfathers is Mathias Miller. His ancestors are German as Well as Mary Knauer family.
Helen May <Hmay2215@gmail.com> lives in Montgomery, AL.
LINEAGE: Davenport and/ or Devenport families in south Montgomery Co., AL & Pike County Al. My ancestor is Rhoda Elizabeth Davenport Griggs (1827-1906) assumed to be the daughter of Micajah and Sarah Berry Davenport who were married in Wilkinson Co. GA. Micajah is assumed to be the son of Joel and Elizabeth Davenport who are living in Wilkinson Co GA before 1830. Joel first appears in Burke Co. GA as a tax defaulter and then draws in the 1805 GA land lottery from Washington Co GA but doesn't claim his land. Could Joel be the son of John Davenport (Devenport) who received a Burke Co. GA Headright and Bounty Plat in 1785?
April Taylor <mataylor@yahoo.com>  lives in Cornville, ME.
LINEAGE: As far back as I have is Wilfred and Vashti Davenport from somewhere around New Brunswick, Canada. They would have been born around 1860ish.

They had a son Russell who married Ethel Butler. No info on any other children. Crossing info shows they were married when they crossed into Maine, but I have found a marriage certificate so not sure there. They would have crossed into Van Buren, Maine in July of 1923.

Thanks so much for any help!
