About Henry de Davenport, of Marton (and Davenport?)

Note 6: About Henry DAVENPORT of DAVENPORT, from George Ormerod, The History of the County Palatine and City of Chester, incorporated with a republication of King's Vale Royal and Leycester's Cheshire Antiquities (2nd ed., revised and enlarged by Thomas Helsby, Esq.: George Routledge and Sons, Ludgate Hill, London, 1882), vol. 3, p. 68:

  "Henry de DAVENPORT, 4th son, of Marton, had lands in Macclesfield, 30 Edw. I: had issue Roger, Mary ux. William MAINWARING de PEOVER, and Margery ux. Thos. de SWETTENHAM."

As hereditary foresters of the King, the Davenports were the game wardens on the King’s Hunting preserves and had the authorized power to put poachers to death without trial. Hence, the crest of the Davenport coat of arms originally was a serf’s head with a rope around its neck, signifying that the Davenports had the power to hang without appeal to the King.
