This page last updated Tuesday July 24, 2012

The Rev. John Davenport was born in Coventry, England in 1597, the grandson of Edward Davenport of Coventry. He left his homeland due to a dispute with the church and arrived in Salem, Massachusetts aboard the Hector in 1637. He was one of the founders of of New Haven, Connecticut and Yale University.  He married Elizabeth Wooley and had a son John. The Rev. John Davenport died in Boston, Massachusetts in 1670.  Many of John's descendants settled in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York. There is very good documentation linking this line to Edward Davenport of Coventry and through him the Davenports of Henbury.

Rev John Branches -  Relationship Tree

The following are the known male branches of the Rev. John line. For our purposes a branch would begin with the sons of the 1st generation. If there was only one son then we would start with the sons in the 2nd generation and so on. We would like to test at lease one individual from each branch. The red highlighted entries are branches for which we have test participants. Of course we will accept any Davenport participants but especially need the non-highlighted branches.

If there are additional branches not listed or other changes need to be made - contact info@DavenportDNA.com

Y-DNA Test Results - Note: The Y-DNA of the Rev. John Davenport line is very similar to three other American lines and those of English origin. This means that these groups are all related somehow.  To see how the Rev. John Y-DNA compares to the others, you can visit the English page here: Davenports of Direct English Descent

These are the Y-DNA results to-date of the participants descended from Rev. John Davenport. The different row colors represent the separate branches of the line.  Click on the Kit # to view more information about the individual Davenport linage.  Newer results have a purple block to the left of the kit number. The Modal haplotype is what we believe the Y-DNA of Rev. John looked like based on current results.  Red and blue cells show where an individual varies from the modal. Red indicates movement upward, while blue downward. Combined pink cells represent "connected" markers where the actual difference is counted as one.

The descendents of Rev John Davenport

Other Surnames

 

In most cases when any of our Davenport results have had a high resolution (37 or 67 marker) match - it was with another Davenport. However, there have been a few other surnames that came very close to the Davenports. For our purposes, very close means they match on 33 out of 37 markers or better, or 62 out of 67 or better. The surnames listed below are those that are very close to this Davenport line on the 37 or 67 marker test.

This does not necessarily infer that they had a common ancestor.  But it may be worth looking into the possibility. The first step is to determine if the ancestors lived in the same vicinity at the same time. When viewing the "prospects" - give the 67/67 a higher priority, then 66/67, and 65/67, and so on.
