English Davenport Lines (No topics)

The Davenport name can be traced back to Orme De Dauneporte, who was alive about 1086 AD. His descendants acquired the hereditary role of Magistrate Sergeants of the Forest of Macclesfield, of the county Cheshire, with local legal powers to prosecute and punish criminals. Over the centuries Orme's descendants have multiplied and established many Davenport "Manors" throughout Cheshire, including Wheltrough, Bramhall, and Capesthorne. In the early 1600's, some of those descendents made their way to North America, primarily Boston, and thereby became the founders of at least four American Davenport lines.
