About Dorothy Davenport

From http://www.pamunkeybakers.com/p18.htm#i1238

Dorothy [Glover?] Davenport was born c 1685. According to the Pamunkey Davenports:

"There are several Martin Davenport, Sr., genealogies circulating which identify his wife as Dorothy Harrelson, which is surely based on the facts that Paul Harrelson [Jr.] was a neighbor to Martin in Hanover, witnessed Martin's will, and was bondsman for Dorothy as executrix of the Estate. The Harrelson association with the Davenports was limited to those three events, all within a few months in 1735. The Harrelsons came to the Hanover neighborhood from a different direction and departed sooner and in a different direction than the Davenports. Two Harrelson wills were recorded in Hanover just prior to Martin's -- one of Paul Harrelson, Sr., and one for Harrelson, Sr.'s eldest son Peter. Both were detailed in identifying heirs, mentioned no Dorothy, no Davenports, and no one closely associated with the Davenports, and included no Davenport witnesses. There were no Davenports associated with the Harrelsons in their migration from Virginia or in their settlements in the Carolinas. Nor were there any Harrelsons associated with the Davenports in their migrations."2 

Marriage bef 1716  She married Martin Davenport Sr., son of Davis Davenport and wife of Davis Davenport, bef 1716 at prob King William County, VA. Dorothy was likely a second wife and mother of only some of Martin's children. She may have been a Glover, and possibly a daughter of William and Mary Glover of King William County.2,3 


I thought I should let you know that relation of Dorothy Glover and Davenport to Henry Baker, who appears in my line, is entirely unsubstantiated, and I have begun to believe that it is entirely false.

Do you have any information to the contrary?
