A History and Genealogy of the Davenport Family: In England and America, from A. D. 1086 to 1850 by Amzi Benedict Davenport, 1851

"Richard who married Amabilia, daughter of the second Gilbert Venables, the Norman grantee of Davenport, etc., before 1086. Hugh Kevelioc, Earl of Chester, granted by charter to Richard de Davenport, the master forestership of the forests of Leek and Maeclesfield, about 1166, which was an hereritary office, and is nominally held at the present time. This Richard de Davenport had also in marriage with Amabilia, a moiety of the township of Marton, by grant from her brother William de Venables, and the same has continued by hereditary descent in the Davnport family to the present day. This township is noticed in the Domesday survey, and was held, together with other estates by the Saxon thane Goderic. From various coincidences in the Domesday account, it appears that Wulfric, who lived in the time of Edward the Confessor, 1040, and who was grandfather to Margaret Venables, the mother of Amabilia, was heir (probably brother) to Goderic, and that the Norman conquerors who had dispossessed this family in the first instance, re-admitted them to Marton, Cranage, Etc."
