About John Davenport
7 v. John DAVENPORT, born Abt. 1705 in Pamunkey Neck, King William Co., VA; died Aft. Oct 1736. He married Mary SMITH; born Abt. 1700.
Notes for John DAVENPORT:
- All we know about John is that being of "King William County", he bought 230 acres south of the James River in Henrico County on 10 October 1736. By 1749, the tract was in Chesterfield County, and by 1777 it was in Powhatan County. He may have been childless inasmuch as Absalom of Richard was the only Davenport enumerated in Powhatan County in 1783, or those yet unidentified Davenports in Goochland County before the Revolution may have been his descendants
