All Davenports and descendants of Davenports are invited to the 2019 Davenport Gathering to be held in Leon Nixon’s Catering Facility in Edenton on August 5-7 and at the Silas Davenport family farm on the Scuppernong River below Columbia on August 8.

The speakers at this event are all volunteers who have spent many years researching our Davenport families. Although most Davenports from the Albemarle area are descendants from Richard Davenport of Kilby Parish, England, we expect Davenport descendants from other early colonial Davenports.

The cost is $100 for the catering all four days, eight meals in total.

I have reserved rooms at reduced rates at local hotels. However, out-of-towners must reserve their rooms at the Hampton Inn in Edenton by June 27 (phone 252-482-3500) or the Holiday Inn Express in Plymouth by July 5 (phone 252-793-4700) to get the significantly reduced rate. The rooms are reserved under Davenport Gathering.

If you are interested in attending to learn about your Davenports, the DNA modeling, the free access to Davenport databases available to everyone, as well as graveyard dowsing, please contact me at my email address, michael.ldavenport344@yahoo.com.
