: Davenport of Davenport Damport of Damport, Davenport of Henbury, Davenport of Welthrough
Da26 Ormus Orm
Various web sites report that Ormus was born about 1104. However, BLG1886 Davenport of Davenport and other web sites report that Ormus was living in the time of William the Conqueror who d. 1087. Noting that Gilbert de Venables, shown below as father-in-law of Ormus's grandson Thomas, was grandson of another Gilbert de Venables who is known to have come to England at the time of the Conquest, it is likely that either Ormus was indeed born c1104, or that either or both of he or his son Gilbert married late in life, or that a generation has been missed out here. Some sources identify Ormus as 'of Davenport' but others suggest that it was his son Richard who obtained Davenport from the Venables family, presumably consequent to his marriage.
Da25. Richard de Davenport of Davenport
m c1165 Amabil de Venables dau of Gilbert de Venables of Kinderton
Da24 Thomas de Davenport
Da23 Richard de Davenport omitted by some sites
Da22 Vivian de Davenport of Chester omitted by some sites
Some web sites show this Vivian as son of the Richard who married Amabil de Venables, ie. missing out the above 2 generations. If the dates are to be believed, always a moot issue, we suspect that there was at least 1 generation in-between.
m Beatrix de Hulme dau of Bertrand de Hulme
Da21 Roger de Davenport d c1297
m Mary Salemon dau of Robert Salemon or Salmon
Da21 Sir Thomas de Davenport of Davenport d c1320
Several web sites show Sir Thomas as having married twice but there is inconsistency with the attribution of the children to those wives.
