History of the Davenport name

Posted: 24 Oct 2004 3:29PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Davenports
I recently came across a book of 'County Families of Lancashire and Cheshire' printed around 1820. It has about 30 pages of information concerning the Davenport family, including the various stories of how we aquired our coat of arms. Aparently there is a proverbial saying in Cheshire that goes "In cheshire there are Leighs as plenty as flees, and as many Davenports as dogs tails." I would like to share this information and wondered if there was a web site where the pages could be posted.
Anyway if anyone has any ideas or are interested please let me know.
