Notes for Davis "David" Davenport:

General Notes:

Davis Davenport was named as the father of Martin Davenport in Martin’s will. Due to the destruction of nearly all colonial records in the area of Virginia in which he lived, there are only two records for him other than Martin Davenport’s will. All three of these records give his name as "Davis", certainly a suggestion that there may be a Davis somewhere in the family tree. (it is curious, though, that the name was not passed on to any succeeding generation.)

 

The first evidence of Davis Davenport is a survey made in 1696 for Major John Waller, laying off almost 1,000 acres on the Mattaponi River in Pamunkey Neck (then part of King & Queen County) that Waller had bought from Elias Downes. “Davenport's plantation” was shown on the survey as bounding Waller's purchase on the upriver side, and "below Davis Davenport's landing on Mattaponi" was cited in the survey notes as the beginning point of the survey.[1] A William Davis was shown on the survey as an adjoining landowner diagonally across Waller's land from Davis Davenport. (Apparently the same William Davis and his son John Davis later owned land in Spotsylvania County in the same neighborhood as did John Waller, who moved there in 1722.)

 

In 1667, when Elias Downes originally acquired the land he later sold to Waller, Davis Davenport was not mentioned as an adjoining landowner. So we can be certain only that he arrived in the Pamunkey Neck sometime between 1667 and 1696.

 

We next find Davis Davenport, with his son Martin, in the 1704 quit rent roll of King William County, Virginia. Davis Davenport was listed with 200 acres and Martin Davenport with 100 acres. How he The last mention of him is in his son Martin’s will. Martin Davenport’s will, dated 24 May 1735 and recorded 2 October 1735 in Hanover County, Virginia, leaves “to my son, William Davenport, 20 acres of land in King William County, it being part of 100 acres left me by my father, Davis Deavenport.” [2] His parents are unknown. There were several Davenports who are candidates, but the destruction of most early records of eastern Virginia make it unlikely we will ever identify them.

 

His wife is unknown. Of his children, only Martin is provable. Five others are identifiable by their early proximity to his land in King William County, and by their relationships with one another.

 

 

1. Martin Davenport (c1680? – 1735) He named his father as Davis Davenport in his own will. See separate page.

 

 

2. Thomas Davenport (c1680s – 1775) He was surely another son, being closely associated with the children of Martin Davenport. On 23 December 1714, Thomas “Devenport” recorded a patent of 311 acres on the north side of the Pamunkey River in St. John’s Parish, King William County.[3] This tract was quite near Martin and Davis Davenport, and seems to have adjoined the later patent by Richard Davenport. In 1740 he patented land on Little Guinea Creek in Goochland (later Cumberland) County[4] and renewed it with additional land added in 1746.[5] He remained in Cumberland County until his death, appearing in numerous records. His wife is thought to have been Grace Terry. A will dated 16 July 1773 was proved on 27 March 1775 in Cumberland County, Virginia.[6] A subsequent will dated 29 September 1774 was later proved, replacing the first.[7] The children named in the wills were sons Thomas Jr., James, Henry, William, Stephen, and Julius. His son Stephen, who predeceased him, was the first husband of Molly Slaughter, who later married David Davenport. Three of Stephen’s children were named in the second will” William, Stephen, and Molly. Only one daughter ws mentioned, Drusilla, the wife of Gideon Glenn.

 

 

3. John Davenport A John Davenport “of King William County” he purchased 230 acres in Henrico County on 10 October 1736. He sold this land in 1740 and disappeared. There is some possibility that he went to North Carolina.

 

 

4. Richard Davenport (c1704 – 1776) He patented land in Caroline County on 15 September 1752 that adjoined the “land of Davenport”, apparently referring to the 1714 patent by Thomas Davenport.[8] He died in Caroline County, Virginia.

 

 

5. Elias Davenport (c1700? – c1765) This is very tentative. On 27 July 1733 an Elias Davenport witnessed (by mark) a deed for land in Spotsylvania County located quite near the land Martin Davenport had owned through 1721.[9] Both the buyer and seller were neighbors of Martin Davenport. There are no other Virginia records mentioning him, an Elias Davenport who seems to be about the same age appeared twenty years later in Bertie County, North Carolina. He appears on the 1757 Bertie tax list with two tithables, and again on the 1759 tax list. He is last in Bertie County in 1762. He had at least two sons, Dorrel and John, who seem to have been born in the early 1730s. Whether he is a son or grandson of Davis Davenport (or of some other Davenport entirely) is unknown.

 

 

6. Ann Davenport (c1696 – 1782) married Thomas Graves and died in Spotsylvania County.

Davis "David" Davenport and unknown spouse married. They had the following children:

7. i.

Martin Davenport Sr. was born about 1682 in Pamunkey Neck, Virginina. He married Dorothy Glover Harelson in 1706 in Pamuney Neck, VA. He died on 04 May 1735 in Hanover Co., Virginia.

8. ii.

Thomas Davenport Sr. was born about 1688 in Pamunkey, Virginia. He married Grace Terry in 1710 in Cumberland Co. Virginia. He died in 1775 in Cumberland, Virginia, USA.

iii.

Sarah Ann Davenport was born about 1696 in King & Queen Co., Virginia. She married Thomas Graves III about 1714 in King William, Virginia. She died about 1786.

iv.

John Davenport was born about 1705 in King William, Virginia.

Notes for John Davenport:

General Notes:

All we know about John is that being of "King William County", he bought 230 acres south of the James River in Henrico County on 10 October 1736. By 1749, the tract was in Chesterfield County, and by 1777 it was in Powhatan County. He may have been childless inasmuch as Absalom of Richard was the only Davenport enumerated in Powhatan County in 1783, or those yet unidentified Davenports in Goochland County before the Revolution may have been his descendants.

Martin Davenport Sr.-7 (Davis "David"-6, Martin-5, Lancelot-4, William-3, William-2, William-1) was born about 1682 in Pamunkey Neck, Virginina. He died on 04 May 1735 in Hanover Co., Virginia.

Notes for Martin Davenport Sr.:

General Notes:

Martin Davenport is the only provable child of Davis Davenport. His will (see below) mentions land left to him by his father Davis Davenport. He and Davis Davenport both appear in the 1704 Quit Rent roll of King William County, Davis with 200 acres and Martin with 100 acres. How Martin Davenport acquired this land is unknown, but it was apparently located several miles up the Mattaponi River from Davis Davenport’s. A 1703 patent in the area refers to “the path from Yarbrough’s Ferry to Davenport’s.” [1] A 1705 patent mentions “Davenport’s Path” in the same area.[2] Both appear to refer to the land of Martin Davenport rather than that of his father. Given the existence of a path named for him by 1703, I have assumed Martin to have been a mature adult by then.

 

 

The destruction of early King William County records in the courthouse fire of 1885 leaves us with little information on Martin’s early life. However, a partially preserved deed dated 8 and 9 November 1721 shows Martin Davenport of St. Margaret’s Parish, King William County, selling 50 acres which was either part of the land he owned in 1704 or next to it.[3] The deed describes the land as part of the 1705 patent mentioned above. Martin Davenport proved the deed himself in court on 18 January 1722.

 

 

About this time, he moved about 40 miles northwest into Hanover County. A patent by Capt. Thomas Carr dated 24 March 1725 for land on the south side of the North Anna River in Hanover adjoined “the land of Martin Davenport”.[4] Although he was apparently living on it by early 1725, Martin Davenport did not patent this land, 400 acres on the south bank of the North Anna River, until 7 February 1727.[5] The tract included the mouth of Little Rocky Creek; seventeen years when Louisa County was formed from Hanover, the county line ran through the western portion of this tract.

 

 

Unfortunately for us, the early records of Hanover County were also destroyed. The only remaining records are two of the six vestry books and a single book of Hanover County court records for the years 1734-5. By sheer good luck, we find Martin Davenport mentioned in that record book twice, one of these being his will.

 

 

On 7 June 1734 Richard Phillips sold John Searcy 400 acres of land in St. Martin’s Parish adjoining Martin Davenport, Captain Carr, Thomas Wilson, and Paul Harralson.[6] William Davenport, his son, was a witness. It would appear from this record that Martin was still living on his 1727 patent.

 

 

Between the surviving mentions in Hanover County, Martin Davenport also appears once in the records of Spotsylvania County (across the river), witnessing a deed on 28 July 1731 for the sale of land held in trust for Ann Arnold, the wife of his son William Davenport.[7] Martin signed with his mark.

 

 

The second and final mention of Martin Davenport in surviving Hanover County records is his will. It is dated 24 May 1735 and recorded 2 October 1735, naming his wife Dorothy and sons William, David, James, Martin Jr., and John.[8] The will divides his home place equally between David and James: “to David, I give the plantation whereon I now live and seventy-five acres adjoining, and the remaining part to my son James Davenport.” If David died without issue, his portion would revert to Martin Davenport Jr. If James died without issue, his portion reverted to John Davenport. Son William Davenport was given “…20 acres of land in King William County, it being part of 100 acres left me by my father, Davis Deavenport.” Dorothy and William Davenport were named executors, and Martin signed with his mark.

 

 

Dorothy Davenport, the widow, filed an administrator’s bond on 2 October 1735, signing with her mark.[9] She continued to live on the home place for at least the next thirty-two years, as witness David Davenport’s mortgage of 1767 in which he mortgaged 150 acres “whereon Dorothy Davenport, mother of sd. David Davenport resides, being the same tract of land which Martin Davenport deceased, father of sd. David Davenport by his last will and testament devised to sd. Dorothy for life and then to sd. David Davenport”[10] (Note that David was claiming the entire tract, though the will left him only half of it.)

 

 

Note also that Martin Davenport had patented 400 acres in Hanover County in 1727, but devised only 150 acres of it in his will seven years later. Whatever sales there may have been were destroyed with the rest of the Hanover records. However, it appears that the portion of the missing 250 acres that lay in what became Louisa County was partly in the hands of Richard Davenport, surely another son, and partly owned by Charles Kennedy, apparently a son-in-law.

 

 

The maiden name of Martin Davenport’s wife, Dorothy, is unknown. She may have been a Glover, since that name occurs both among Martin’s sons and in the children of his younger sons. The fact that the widow Dorothy outlived Martin Davenport by more than three decades leads to speculation that she may have been a second wife, although his children were born within a time span short enough for a single mother. If there was an earlier wife, many think she may have been named “Crotia”, to explain the daughter of that name. Mary, Crotia, and Dorothy all had daughters named Crotia. The name “Crotia” is also repeated among the elder children of Martin. It is equally possible, however, that Crotia was the name of his mother, the wife of Davis Davenport.

 

 

He evidently married Dorothy as a second wife about 1715. Dorothy may have been the daughter of William and Mary Glover, one explanation for the prevalence of the name “Glover” among his descendants. This connection is entirely circumstantial, but all known Davenports named Glover are descendants of Martin Davenport’s younger children, so it seems plausible that Dorothy was a Glover. Research among the few extant records remaining of King William County identify a William Glover as a freeholder located relatively near Martin Davenport's land listed for Quit Rents in 1704. It is a toss up as to whether Martin's son Glover or son William was the eldest of his children by Dorothy. I lean toward Glover being the eldest because all the children of the second wife were named in Martin Davenports will except Glover. That suggests he had already settled with both Glover and the children of his first wife.

 

 

 

1. Mary Davenport (c1706 - 1775) The wife of Henry Gambill, she may have been another daughter. They married sometime in the late 1720s. about 1728 and died in Culpepper County, Virginia.

 

 

2. Crotia Davenport (c1710? – aft1789) The wife of Charles Kennedy is though to have been an elder daughter, since they named a son, born about 1735, Davenport Kennedy. A purchase of land by Kennedy adjoining the Martin Davenport plantation in 1751 was witnessed by David, William, and John Davenport.[11] Another son, Patrick Kennedy, was arrested for attempting to murder Thomas Graves, either an uncle or cousin, and Martin Davenport Jr. stood his bond in Spotsylvania County. A daughter was named “Crosha” (Crotia?). Charles Kennedy owned land in Hanover, Louisa, and Spotsylvania counties. At the time of his death in 1784 he and his probable brother-in-law Richard Davenport owned all of the land that Martin Davenport, Sr., did not devise from his 1727 patent. Crotia was still alive as late as 1789, when her daughter Crotia was married in Louisa County.[12]

 

 

3. Thomas Davenport (c1711 – 10 November1809) He was apparently another son. He moved to Burke County, North Carolina in the 1770s at about the same time Mary Gambill moved to the same area.

 

 

4. Richard Davenport (c1713 – 1792) Although not named in the will, he seems to have been deeded a portion of Martin Davenport’s land. He married Elizabeth, the widow of Robert Hamner, and died in Albemarle County. Children: David,

 

 

5. William Davenport (c1713 - 1798) He first appears as a witness in Hanover County to the sale of land adjoining Martin Davenport on 6 June 1734. (He did not have to be 21 to be a witness, but it is likely he was.) He married Anne Arnold, lived in Spotsylvania County, and died in 1798. His will names children Augustine, David, William, John, James, Delphy (Kennedy), Nancy, and Sarah (Edds or Eads) . His children Martin and Mary (Arnold) were not mentined in the will.).

 

 

6. Dorothy Davenport (2 November 1716 – 1790) She seems likely to have been another daughter. If so, her name suggests she was a daughter of the second wife. She married Thomas Baker and died in Burke County, NC

 

 

7. John Davenport (c1717 – c1773) He married Mary Smith and had children William, Martin, Jack Smith, John, and Richard. He died in Spotsylvania County.

 

 

8. Glover Davenport (c1719 – c1785) Married Ann ____. Children: Matthew, James, Joseph, Joel, Moses, William, and John.

 

 

9. James Davenport (c1719 – 1803) He married Frances Jouett, daughter of Mathew Jouett and Susannah (Price?) about 1750 and they apparently lived on his father’s land until moving to Albemarle County, then to Georgia in the 1790s. He died in Oglethorpe County, leaving a will. Children: Francis Jouett, Susannah, John, James, Sarah, William, Jesse, and Henrietta.

 

 

10. Martin Davenport (c1720 – c1800?) He appears to have died a bachelor. He was still living on his brother David’s land – his father’s plantation in Hanover – as of 1778, when he gave a deposition in the Davis Davenport-John Wilkinson suit.

 

 

11. David Davenport (c1720 – 1802) See below.

 

 

12. Lucy Davenport (c1725 – bef1772) She may have been another daughter. She married Joseph Venable about 1745 and died before Venable in Spotsylvania County.

Notes for Martin Davenport Sr.:

General Notes:

Martin Davenport is the only provable child of Davis Davenport. His will (see below) mentions land left to him by his father Davis Davenport. He and Davis Davenport both appear in the 1704 Quit Rent roll of King William County, Davis with 200 acres and Martin with 100 acres. How Martin Davenport acquired this land is unknown, but it was apparently located several miles up the Mattaponi River from Davis Davenport’s. A 1703 patent in the area refers to “the path from Yarbrough’s Ferry to Davenport’s.” [1] A 1705 patent mentions “Davenport’s Path” in the same area.[2] Both appear to refer to the land of Martin Davenport rather than that of his father. Given the existence of a path named for him by 1703, I have assumed Martin to have been a mature adult by then.

 

 

The destruction of early King William County records in the courthouse fire of 1885 leaves us with little information on Martin’s early life. However, a partially preserved deed dated 8 and 9 November 1721 shows Martin Davenport of St. Margaret’s Parish, King William County, selling 50 acres which was either part of the land he owned in 1704 or next to it.[3] The deed describes the land as part of the 1705 patent mentioned above. Martin Davenport proved the deed himself in court on 18 January 1722.

 

 

About this time, he moved about 40 miles northwest into Hanover County. A patent by Capt. Thomas Carr dated 24 March 1725 for land on the south side of the North Anna River in Hanover adjoined “the land of Martin Davenport”.[4] Although he was apparently living on it by early 1725, Martin Davenport did not patent this land, 400 acres on the south bank of the North Anna River, until 7 February 1727.[5] The tract included the mouth of Little Rocky Creek; seventeen years when Louisa County was formed from Hanover, the county line ran through the western portion of this tract.

 

 

Unfortunately for us, the early records of Hanover County were also destroyed. The only remaining records are two of the six vestry books and a single book of Hanover County court records for the years 1734-5. By sheer good luck, we find Martin Davenport mentioned in that record book twice, one of these being his will.

 

 

On 7 June 1734 Richard Phillips sold John Searcy 400 acres of land in St. Martin’s Parish adjoining Martin Davenport, Captain Carr, Thomas Wilson, and Paul Harralson.[6] William Davenport, his son, was a witness. It would appear from this record that Martin was still living on his 1727 patent.

 

 

Between the surviving mentions in Hanover County, Martin Davenport also appears once in the records of Spotsylvania County (across the river), witnessing a deed on 28 July 1731 for the sale of land held in trust for Ann Arnold, the wife of his son William Davenport.[7] Martin signed with his mark.

 

 

The second and final mention of Martin Davenport in surviving Hanover County records is his will. It is dated 24 May 1735 and recorded 2 October 1735, naming his wife Dorothy and sons William, David, James, Martin Jr., and John.[8] The will divides his home place equally between David and James: “to David, I give the plantation whereon I now live and seventy-five acres adjoining, and the remaining part to my son James Davenport.” If David died without issue, his portion would revert to Martin Davenport Jr. If James died without issue, his portion reverted to John Davenport. Son William Davenport was given “…20 acres of land in King William County, it being part of 100 acres left me by my father, Davis Deavenport.” Dorothy and William Davenport were named executors, and Martin signed with his mark.

 

 

Dorothy Davenport, the widow, filed an administrator’s bond on 2 October 1735, signing with her mark.[9] She continued to live on the home place for at least the next thirty-two years, as witness David Davenport’s mortgage of 1767 in which he mortgaged 150 acres “whereon Dorothy Davenport, mother of sd. David Davenport resides, being the same tract of land which Martin Davenport deceased, father of sd. David Davenport by his last will and testament devised to sd. Dorothy for life and then to sd. David Davenport”[10] (Note that David was claiming the entire tract, though the will left him only half of it.)

 

 

Note also that Martin Davenport had patented 400 acres in Hanover County in 1727, but devised only 150 acres of it in his will seven years later. Whatever sales there may have been were destroyed with the rest of the Hanover records. However, it appears that the portion of the missing 250 acres that lay in what became Louisa County was partly in the hands of Richard Davenport, surely another son, and partly owned by Charles Kennedy, apparently a son-in-law.

 

 

The maiden name of Martin Davenport’s wife, Dorothy, is unknown. She may have been a Glover, since that name occurs both among Martin’s sons and in the children of his younger sons. The fact that the widow Dorothy outlived Martin Davenport by more than three decades leads to speculation that she may have been a second wife, although his children were born within a time span short enough for a single mother. If there was an earlier wife, many think she may have been named “Crotia”, to explain the daughter of that name. Mary, Crotia, and Dorothy all had daughters named Crotia. The name “Crotia” is also repeated among the elder children of Martin. It is equally possible, however, that Crotia was the name of his mother, the wife of Davis Davenport.

 

 

He evidently married Dorothy as a second wife about 1715. Dorothy may have been the daughter of William and Mary Glover, one explanation for the prevalence of the name “Glover” among his descendants. This connection is entirely circumstantial, but all known Davenports named Glover are descendants of Martin Davenport’s younger children, so it seems plausible that Dorothy was a Glover. Research among the few extant records remaining of King William County identify a William Glover as a freeholder located relatively near Martin Davenport's land listed for Quit Rents in 1704. It is a toss up as to whether Martin's son Glover or son William was the eldest of his children by Dorothy. I lean toward Glover being the eldest because all the children of the second wife were named in Martin Davenports will except Glover. That suggests he had already settled with both Glover and the children of his first wife.

Notes for Martin Davenport Sr.:

General Notes:

Martin Davenport is the only provable child of Davis Davenport. His will (see below) mentions land left to him by his father Davis Davenport. He and Davis Davenport both appear in the 1704 Quit Rent roll of King William County, Davis with 200 acres and Martin with 100 acres. How Martin Davenport acquired this land is unknown, but it was apparently located several miles up the Mattaponi River from Davis Davenport’s. A 1703 patent in the area refers to “the path from Yarbrough’s Ferry to Davenport’s.” [1] A 1705 patent mentions “Davenport’s Path” in the same area.[2] Both appear to refer to the land of Martin Davenport rather than that of his father. Given the existence of a path named for him by 1703, I have assumed Martin to have been a mature adult by then.

 

 

The destruction of early King William County records in the courthouse fire of 1885 leaves us with little information on Martin’s early life. However, a partially preserved deed dated 8 and 9 November 1721 shows Martin Davenport of St. Margaret’s Parish, King William County, selling 50 acres which was either part of the land he owned in 1704 or next to it.[3] The deed describes the land as part of the 1705 patent mentioned above. Martin Davenport proved the deed himself in court on 18 January 1722.

 

 

About this time, he moved about 40 miles northwest into Hanover County. A patent by Capt. Thomas Carr dated 24 March 1725 for land on the south side of the North Anna River in Hanover adjoined “the land of Martin Davenport”.[4] Although he was apparently living on it by early 1725, Martin Davenport did not patent this land, 400 acres on the south bank of the North Anna River, until 7 February 1727.[5] The tract included the mouth of Little Rocky Creek; seventeen years when Louisa County was formed from Hanover, the county line ran through the western portion of this tract.

 

 

Unfortunately for us, the early records of Hanover County were also destroyed. The only remaining records are two of the six vestry books and a single book of Hanover County court records for the years 1734-5. By sheer good luck, we find Martin Davenport mentioned in that record book twice, one of these being his will.

 

 

On 7 June 1734 Richard Phillips sold John Searcy 400 acres of land in St. Martin’s Parish adjoining Martin Davenport, Captain Carr, Thomas Wilson, and Paul Harralson.[6] William Davenport, his son, was a witness. It would appear from this record that Martin was still living on his 1727 patent.

 

 

Between the surviving mentions in Hanover County, Martin Davenport also appears once in the records of Spotsylvania County (across the river), witnessing a deed on 28 July 1731 for the sale of land held in trust for Ann Arnold, the wife of his son William Davenport.[7] Martin signed with his mark.

 

 

The second and final mention of Martin Davenport in surviving Hanover County records is his will. It is dated 24 May 1735 and recorded 2 October 1735, naming his wife Dorothy and sons William, David, James, Martin Jr., and John.[8] The will divides his home place equally between David and James: “to David, I give the plantation whereon I now live and seventy-five acres adjoining, and the remaining part to my son James Davenport.” If David died without issue, his portion would revert to Martin Davenport Jr. If James died without issue, his portion reverted to John Davenport. Son William Davenport was given “…20 acres of land in King William County, it being part of 100 acres left me by my father, Davis Deavenport.” Dorothy and William Davenport were named executors, and Martin signed with his mark.

 

 

Dorothy Davenport, the widow, filed an administrator’s bond on 2 October 1735, signing with her mark.[9] She continued to live on the home place for at least the next thirty-two years, as witness David Davenport’s mortgage of 1767 in which he mortgaged 150 acres “whereon Dorothy Davenport, mother of sd. David Davenport resides, being the same tract of land which Martin Davenport deceased, father of sd. David Davenport by his last will and testament devised to sd. Dorothy for life and then to sd. David Davenport”[10] (Note that David was claiming the entire tract, though the will left him only half of it.)

 

 

Note also that Martin Davenport had patented 400 acres in Hanover County in 1727, but devised only 150 acres of it in his will seven years later. Whatever sales there may have been were destroyed with the rest of the Hanover records. However, it appears that the portion of the missing 250 acres that lay in what became Louisa County was partly in the hands of Richard Davenport, surely another son, and partly owned by Charles Kennedy, apparently a son-in-law.

 

 

The maiden name of Martin Davenport’s wife, Dorothy, is unknown. She may have been a Glover, since that name occurs both among Martin’s sons and in the children of his younger sons. The fact that the widow Dorothy outlived Martin Davenport by more than three decades leads to speculation that she may have been a second wife, although his children were born within a time span short enough for a single mother. If there was an earlier wife, many think she may have been named “Crotia”, to explain the daughter of that name. Mary, Crotia, and Dorothy all had daughters named Crotia. The name “Crotia” is also repeated among the elder children of Martin. It is equally possible, however, that Crotia was the name of his mother, the wife of Davis Davenport.

 

 

He evidently married Dorothy as a second wife about 1715. Dorothy may have been the daughter of William and Mary Glover, one explanation for the prevalence of the name “Glover” among his descendants. This connection is entirely circumstantial, but all known Davenports named Glover are descendants of Martin Davenport’s younger children, so it seems plausible that Dorothy was a Glover. Research among the few extant records remaining of King William County identify a William Glover as a freeholder located relatively near Martin Davenport's land listed for Quit Rents in 1704. It is a toss up as to whether Martin's son Glover or son William was the eldest of his children by Dorothy. I lean toward Glover being the eldest because all the children of the second wife were named in Martin Davenports will except Glover. That suggests he had already settled with both Glover and the children of his first wife.

 

 

 

1. Mary Davenport (c1706 - 1775) The wife of Henry Gambill, she may have been another daughter. They married sometime in the late 1720s. about 1728 and died in Culpepper County, Virginia.

 

 

2. Crotia Davenport (c1710? – aft1789) The wife of Charles Kennedy is though to have been an elder daughter, since they named a son, born about 1735, Davenport Kennedy. A purchase of land by Kennedy adjoining the Martin Davenport plantation in 1751 was witnessed by David, William, and John Davenport.[11] Another son, Patrick Kennedy, was arrested for attempting to murder Thomas Graves, either an uncle or cousin, and Martin Davenport Jr. stood his bond in Spotsylvania County. A daughter was named “Crosha” (Crotia?). Charles Kennedy owned land in Hanover, Louisa, and Spotsylvania counties. At the time of his death in 1784 he and his probable brother-in-law Richard Davenport owned all of the land that Martin Davenport, Sr., did not devise from his 1727 patent. Crotia was still alive as late as 1789, when her daughter Crotia was married in Louisa County.[12]

 

 

3. Thomas Davenport (c1711 – 10 November1809) He was apparently another son. He moved to Burke County, North Carolina in the 1770s at about the same time Mary Gambill moved to the same area.

 

 

4. Richard Davenport (c1713 – 1792) Although not named in the will, he seems to have been deeded a portion of Martin Davenport’s land. He married Elizabeth, the widow of Robert Hamner, and died in Albemarle County. Children: David,

 

 

5. William Davenport (c1713 - 1798) He first appears as a witness in Hanover County to the sale of land adjoining Martin Davenport on 6 June 1734. (He did not have to be 21 to be a witness, but it is likely he was.) He married Anne Arnold, lived in Spotsylvania County, and died in 1798. His will names children Augustine, David, William, John, James, Delphy (Kennedy), Nancy, and Sarah (Edds or Eads) . His children Martin and Mary (Arnold) were not mentined in the will.).

 

 

6. Dorothy Davenport (2 November 1716 – 1790) She seems likely to have been another daughter. If so, her name suggests she was a daughter of the second wife. She married Thomas Baker and died in Burke County, NC

 

 

7. John Davenport (c1717 – c1773) He married Mary Smith and had children William, Martin, Jack Smith, John, and Richard. He died in Spotsylvania County.

 

 

8. Glover Davenport (c1719 – c1785) Married Ann ____. Children: Matthew, James, Joseph, Joel, Moses, William, and John.

 

 

9. James Davenport (c1719 – 1803) He married Frances Jouett, daughter of Mathew Jouett and Susannah (Price?) about 1750 and they apparently lived on his father’s land until moving to Albemarle County, then to Georgia in the 1790s. He died in Oglethorpe County, leaving a will. Children: Francis Jouett, Susannah, John, James, Sarah, William, Jesse, and Henrietta.

 

 

10. Martin Davenport (c1720 – c1800?) He appears to have died a bachelor. He was still living on his brother David’s land – his father’s plantation in Hanover – as of 1778, when he gave a deposition in the Davis Davenport-John Wilkinson suit.

 

 

11. David Davenport (c1720 – 1802) See below.

 

 

12. Lucy Davenport (c1725 – bef1772) She may have been another daughter. She married Joseph Venable about 1745 and died before Venable in Spotsylvania County.

Notes for Elias Davenport:

General Notes:

First found in 1734 in Spotsylvania County joining Thomas Ballard Smith in witnessing a deed for land immediately across the North Anna (Upper Pamunkey) River from Martin Davenport's plantation in Hanover, to Richard Phillips, Martin's neighbor in Hanover. Apparently illiterate -- signed with an "X". Possibly a namesake of Elias Downes, an adjoining landowner in 1696 to the Davis Davenport plantation on Mattaponi waters of King & Queen County (King William County after 1701). Last found apparently as tenant on a 250 acre tract in Bertie County, NC, in 1762.

 

Education: illiterate

 

 

 

Unk Dorrell.

Elias Davenport and Unk Dorrell married. They had the following children:

29. i.

Dorrel Davenport was born about 1733 in King William Co., Virginia. She died in 1785 in Nash Co., North Carolina.

ii.

John Davenport was born about 1735 in King William Co., Virginia. He married Lucy Harrell about 1762 in Bertie Co., North Carolina.

Notes for John Davenport:

General Notes:

First found cited in Bertie deed in 1765 as a patent holder near the Hertford-Bertie County line. [All early Hertford records were lost in a courthouse fire.] Last found in 1783 when he sold all of his land in Nash County and apparently moved. Not located in either North or South Carolina in the Censuses of 1790 or 1800 (Georgia enumerations for both years were destroyed by British in 1814 when they burned Washington City.)

 

Although they moved in concert and settled relatively close to each other, Dorrell and John Davenport did not witness each others deeds nor apparently travel in the same social circle. Dorrell appeared routinely in Edgecombre-Nash records - when he was called as a petit juror, assigned road work, or appointed to appraise an estate. John, on the other hand, was a petit juror, a grand juror, a superior court juror, was called upon to appraise estates, and frequently served as a bondsman. His stature grew rapidly with the growth of the Revolution. He became a Militia Captain, a Magistrate, a Tax Assessor, and ultimately the Collector of Army Supplies for Nash County. He was surely a political power in Nash when he elected to sell out and move elsewhere - which suggests Georgia which in 1783 offered great opportunities for politicians and land speculators.

 

Statement by John Scott Davenport, Phd., Compiler of the Pamunkey Davenports of Colonial Virginia:

 

You have names and dates and connections of high Pamunkey interest. We have circumstantially identified Elias as a son of Davis, proved Dorrell Davenport as a son of Elias, traced Elias to Bertie County, NC, in the 1750s, and know that he died there in the mid-1760s. We then followed Dorrell and a

John to Edgecombe (later and now Nash) County, NC, waters of the Tar. We identified Captain John Davenport, who grew mightily in stature during the Revolution, finishing off the War as Nash County Commissioner of Provisions, impressing food and supplies for North Carolina Continentals and Militia

during the Revolution. Then I lost him. Shortly after the War when he was riding high in public favor (political clout), he summarily sold out in Nash and went elsewhere. I know not where, but suspected Georgia, for there was lots of opportunities in Georgia following the Revolution. Anyway, I still

had work to do in Virginia. So Captain John went on the back burner, and Dorrell's family I stuck in my Nash County file. By and large, no focused work, if any at all, has been done on the lines of John and Elias, younger sons of Davis. Frankly, I picked up the Bertie, Edgecombe, and Nash Davenport data serendipitously while I was working on a project for the Albemarle Hendricks/Hendrickson family.

General Notes:

After Mary's death, William Wiseman married Lydia Bedford and fathered seven more children: Bedford, b. 1Oct1799; Alexander, b. 28Mar1802; Jemima, b. 6May1804; Josiah, b. 31Jul1806; Elizabeth, 25Apr1809; Lydia, 25May1812; and Anthony Senter, b. 9Feb1814. Note that, on occasion, another child (Nancy) is identified as a Wiseman daughter. An examination of a copy of the original family ledger listing family births strongly suggests that Nancy was, at most, a granddaughter and not a daughter.
