02/11/00 DAVENPORTS IN FREDERICTON AREA?--I'm looking for information about Davenports who settled in Parish of St. Mary's, York County, NB in the 1870s. William Davenport (born in Ireland ca. 1840) married Mary Ann Young (born in Ireland ca. 1845). William and Mary Ann both traveled to Australia (not sure whether together or separately), and their first child, my ggrandmother Catherine Anne Davenport, was born there 17 August 1865. Her brother William Henry was also born in Australia ca. 1867. T he Davenports then boarded a ship ca. 1870; a third child, Eliza, was born at sea during this time. Circa 1871 the family settled in Parish of St. Mary's, York County, where two more children were born--Alice Maud and James Albert. Catherine, William Henry, Eliza and Alice Maud all married in NB and must have extensive relations there by now--I have their spouse's names and some children's names from the PANB. But my ggrandmother Catherine Davenport Arnold died in 1916 when my grampy, Frederic k Hayward Arnold, was only 12--he lost contact with her family at that point, and we don't know their background beyond the above. If anyone connects to this family unit, I'd love to hear from you. Please let me know, and thank you! --Nessa Burns Reifsnyder, Mount Desert, Maine, USA Email:
