of Richard Davis, including Davis Davenport and Ann Davenport.
The Davenport family researchers have placed many of their findings at The Pamunkey Davenports
Website. There they speculate that Davis Davenport was the bastard son
of Richard Davis and Ann Davenport. Richard Davis, Gentleman, was from
Upper New Kent, King and Queen County, Virginia. Ann Davenport was
likely an indentured servant on an adjoining plantation. Both Richard
and Ann were associated with adjoining lands within five miles of where
Davis Davenport first appeared in Virginia records in 1696.
First found cited as a plantation and landing owner in a 1696 survey on
Mattaponi River in Pamunkey Neck, then in King & Queen County and
Chickahominy Indian Reservation. Listed with son Martin in King William
(King & Queen before 1701) Quit Rent Rolls of 1704. Last found
Martin’s father in Martin’s will recorded in Hanover in 1735.
