THE PAMUNKEY DAVENPORT
The Pamunkey Davenport Family Association is proud to announce the
publication (in CD format) of the long-awaited update to John Scott
Davenport's Pamunkey Davenport Chronicles -- The Pamunkey Davenport
Papers. More than 10 years in the making, setting out the synthesis of
decades of genealogical research, Dr. Davenport's extensive history of
the Davenport family that had its beginnings in the Pamunkey Neck region
of Virginia chronicles the events -- great and small -- that shaped the
family from before 1650 to well into the 19th century. In more than 2270
pages, The Pamunkey Davenport Papers reviews the available records and
provides reasoned analysis to place the births, deaths, marriages and
lives of the descendants of Davis Davenport of Pamunkey Neck in the
context of their times. The land transactions, the court proceedings,
the rising and falling fortunes of the individuals, their associations
with other families of the day, and their migrations from the Pamunkey
Neck area throughout Virginia and onward into North Carolina and
elsewhere is carefully documented.
The Pamunkey Davenport
Papers contains three volumes of The Further Chronicles of the Pamunkey
Davenports, together with five annotated supplements covering subjects
as wide-ranging as the DNA results that place some Pamunkey Davenports
in limbo to the records and analysis that separate the Pamunkey
Davenports from other Davenport lines of the times.
To explain the Pamunkey
Davenports requires explanation of the collateral and related families,
and descendants of those families will find much of value in The
Pamunkey Davenport Papers. Among the surnames in these families are:
ARNOLD, BAKER, EVANS, GAMBILL, GLENN, GRAVES, SMITH, TERRY, WASH, WOODROOF, and WOODRUFF [and many more].
The cost of The Pamunkey Davenport Papers is
$29.95, plus shipping, handling and, where applicable, sales tax. The
net proceeds will go to the Davenport DNA Fund for the benefit of all
Davenports, whether or not Pamunkey. The Pamunkey Davenport Papers
are on CD in PDF format. Please make sure you have an updated copy
of the free Adobe Reader program to get the most from the CD files.
