Notes on Sir Thomas
Thomas was married a second time to Roesia de Vernon. She was the widow of Sir William de Brereton. Roesia was, therefore, both the stepmother and the mother-in-law of Sir John Davenport of Davenport who married her daughter, his stepsister, Margery Brereton of Brereton. from George Ormerod, The History of the County Palatine and City of Chester, incorporated with a republication of King's Vale Royal and Leycester's Cheshire Antiquities (2nd ed., revised and enlarged by Thomas Helsby, Esq.: George Routledge and Sons, Ludgate Hill, London, 1882), vol. 3, p. 68.
"Sir Thomas de DAVENPORT, [lord] of DAVENPORT, knight, son and heir of Roger, married, first, Agnes, daughter of Thomas de MACCLESFIELD (the mother of his issue), and secondly, Roesia, daughter of Ralph de VERNON, widow of Sir William de BRERETON, who was living after her second husband's death, in 14 Edw. II. This Thomas de DAVENPORT occurs as demanding puture (in his capacity of grand serjeant) from two tenements in Butley, which the abbot of Chester held of the gift of Edw. Pigot. The claim was resisted, and decision made against the serjeant on reference.1 In 1303, by deed dated at Davenport, this Thomas acknowledges the receipt of four marks, in part of 8 marks due at the Feast of St. Barnabas, for the serjeancy: and in 1309 he grants a lease of the same office for two years to his son Thomas DAVENPORT, and his pledges for two years, at the annual rent of 16 marks of silver.2
"This Thomas, second son of Sir Thomas Davenport, was male ancestor of the DAVENPORTs of WELTROUGH, BRAMALL, HENBURY, and WOODFORD (now also of CAPESTHORNE), and of their several collateral branches." 1. against the serjeant on reference: "Communication of the Rev. W. Davenport."
2. 16 marks of silver: "The pledges were Roger de Motlowe, Vivian de Foxwist, Richard son of John de DAVENPORT, John de Asthul, Adam his brother, and Peter de Capesthorne. Ibid."and on page 68 : "Sir Thomas de DAVENPORT, [lord] of DAVENPORT, [living] 13 Edw. 2."
