They had nine children - Sarah, Thomas, Mary, Charles, Abigail, Mehitable, Jonathan, Ebenezer, and John. Thomas died in Boston in 1685. His descendants settled in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Rhode Island.

Thomas of Dorchester Branches

Relationship Tree - How the participants are related.

The following are the known male branches of the Thomas of Dorchester line. For our purposes a branch would begin with the sons of the 1st generation. If there was only one son then we would start with the sons in the 2nd generation and so on. We would like to test at lease one individual from each branch. The red highlighted entries are branches for which we do not have test participants. Of course we will accept any Davenport participants but especially need the non-highlighted branches.

If there are additional branches not listed or other changes need to be made - contact info "at" davenportdna.com

- Note: The Y-DNA of the Thomas of Dorchester Davenport line is very similar to three other American lines and those of English origin. This means that these groups are all related somehow.  To see how the Thomas of Dorchester Y-DNA compares to the others, you can visit the English page here: Davenports of Direct English Descent

These are the Y-DNA results to-date of the participants descended from Thomas Davenport. The different row colors represent the separate branches of the line.  Click on the Kit # to view more information about the individual Davenport linage.  Newer results have a purple block to the left of the kit number. The Modal haplotype is what we believe the Y-DNA of Thomas of Dorchester looked like based on current results.  Red and blue cells show where an individual varies from the modal. Red indicates movement upward, while blue downward. Combined pink cells represent "connected" markers where the actual difference is counted as one.

 Other Surnames

In most cases when any of our Davenport results have had a high resolution (37 or 67 marker) match - it was with another Davenport. However, there have been a few other surnames that came very close to the Davenports. For our purposes, very close means they match on 33 out of 37 markers or better, or 62 out of 67 or better. The surnames listed below are those that are very close to this Davenport line on the 37 or 67 marker test.
This does not necessarily infer that they had a common ancestor. But it may be worth looking into the possibility. The first step is to determine if the ancestors lived in the same vicinity at the same time. When viewing the "prospects" - give the 67/67 a higher priority, then 66/67, and 65/67, and so on.
