Occasionally, in the Davenport Surname DNA Project, we find a Davenport who's Y-DNA does not match any other Davenport tested so far. This can happen for a variety of reasons. The simplest is that DNA testing is still in its infancy and we certainly haven't tested all of the Davenport lines that exist. There could also have been a Paternity Event - where somewhere up the line, the father was not who we expected it to be. But, it is quite possible that has the number of participants grows, some of this group will move out and join newly discovered Davenport lines.
Listed below are some of websites dedicated to researching Miscelleous Davenports in this group. Each represents the complete line or information about its progenitor. If you know of additional websites that might fit this same criteria - please contact the administrator at info "at" davenportdna.com
A good place to expand your research is the Davenport Archives website. It contains hundreds of Davenport related documents, photos, trees and includes lists of researchers and their interests.
These are the Y-DNA results to-date of the Miscellaneous participants. Unlike the known lines, the mutations are not highlighted. We simply don't if there is a mutation or not. In some cases where there are two or more individuals with very similar Y-DNA, they will be grouped together. 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.
