Re Will, written 14 Dec 1784, proved 20 Jan 1785: Benjamin DAVENPORT of Little Bolton in the County of Lancaster, Yeoman. One of the beneficiaries, John Davenport, is my 4th Great Grandfather. He was born on 16 December 1787 in Coppull in Lancashire, died on 27 October 1855. He married Sarah (no date or maiden name).
Henry Davenport, John’s brother and my 4th great grand uncle, was born on 22 November 1789 in Chorley Lancashire, died 8 November 1860. He married Ellen.
I know that John and Henry’s parents were John Davenport (1755-1840) and Betty Waterhouse (1765 – 1842). I can’t get any further back on the Davenport side but I’ve got Betty’s parents, David Waterhouse (born 1738) and Elizabeth Crook (born 1730).
