It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Families covered: Davenport (Damport) of Bromhall (Bramhall or Broomhall), Davenport (Damport) of Calveley (Cavely)
Da19. John Damport or Davenport BRAMHALL (Maccles.) The third baron of Dunham (in Henry II = 1154-89) confirmed to Mathew de Bromale: "the manors of Bramall, Duckenfield and 11 parts of Baggiley which had been previoulsy held by his father, whose name is not mentioned but who was probably youunger son of near kinsman of Hamo de Masci, the Norman Grantee". (Ormerod p 823). Then, in 6 Edwd I (=1272-1307) "Richard de Bromhall obtained release (ie. exemption) for himself and his tenants in Bromhall, Duckenfield and 11 parts of Baguley (sic) from Hamon de Massey, for being impleaded in the courts of Dunham. He is called Sir Richard in the pedigrees of this family, ‘son of William, son of John, son of Edward’, and is allowed for his armorial coat, Sable, a lion rampant Or". [ie. gold on black], as in the early seals of the lords of Dunham. This Richard also occurs in 17 Edwd I (=1289). His son lived in the reigns of the three Edwards, and was succeeded by his brother Sir Geoffrey de Bromhale whose daughter and co-heiress Ales (=Alice) married John de Davenport, son of Thomas de Davenport of Weltrogh or Wheltrough. BRAMHALL therefore, passed to the Davenports. Source

Bramhall Hall in Stockport was the grand home for the Davenport family of Stockport, who resided there for 500 years - today it belongs to Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council and is open to the public. Bramhall park used to be the parkland and woodland estate attached to Bramall Hall. The Hall is one of Cheshire's grandest black and white timber framed buildings and dates back to the 14th century. Subsequent owners carried out substantial refurbishment in the 19th century.
Capesthorne Hall in Cheshire is stilled owned, and lived in, by the Bromley Davenport branch of the family, who have resided there since the 11th century.
