The English ancestry of the
DAVENPORT famous Rev. John 'Daven-
port, founder of NewHaven,
Connecticut, has been traced for many cen-
turies in England. The Davenport surname is
traced to the earliest period of the use of heredi-
tary family names. The first Davenport. Thomas
De Davenport, was sheriff of England under
William the Conqueror. Besides Rev. John
Davenport. Captain Richard Davenport, of
Salem, and Thomas Davenport, mentioned be-
low, were in Massachusetts before 1640. The
families used the same coats-of-arms. indicat-
ing common ancestry, but the relationship has
not been traced.

(VII) John (3), son of John (2) Daven-

25. 1834. He was educated in the public schools
of Boston. When a young man he went west.
He had an excellent opportunity to make his
fi irtune by buying land in Chicago, then in its
infancy, but went farther west. He prospected
through Iowa, and after walking from one end
of that state to the other settled there. But he
had an attack of fever and ague, and had to
return east. He entered the employ of Robert
Wiggins, dealer in leaf tobacco. A few years
later, when his employer died, he and another
salesman, Charles Legg, bought the business.
This partnership continued for a period of
twenty-five years. After the partnership was
dissolved, Mr. Davenport and his son continued
in the same line of business. In politics he
was a Democrat until Mr. Bryan's presidential
candidacy, when he acted with the Repub-
licans. He married Maria C. Rice, born in

The surname Gilbert is of great
GILBERT antiquity in England. Sir Humph-
rey Gilbert, the famous navigator
and explorer, lived in Devonshire, England,
and died in 1583. He had a son Raleigh Gil-
bert, whose son Humphrey was about the same
age as Humphrey Gilbert, the immigrant men-
tioned below, but it has not been proved that
they were related. The similarity of names,
however, seems to show that the immigrant
was a grandson of Sir Humphrey.

I I ) Humphrey Gilbert, immigrant ancestor,
was born in England in 1615, died February 13,
1658. He settled in Ipswich, Massachusetts,
where he was a husbandman and commoner as
early as 1648. He bought a house and land
there February 5, 1650, near the Wenham
line, and contributed to the fund to support
the Indian war in 1643. He was taxed in
Wenham in 1655. He deposed in 1654 that he
was aged about thirty-eight years. His will
was dated February 14, 1657-58. and proved
March 30, 1657-58. He bequeathed to his wife
Elizabeth, son John and daughter Elizabeth ;
to daughter Abigail and four other daughters
under age ; to Peter Harvey, Richard Palmer,
Richard Comer, Moses Aborn (Eberne). The
four minor daughters petitioned that their hus-
bands be appointed administrators January,
1657-58. Evidence was given June 2J, 1666,
that the daughter Hannah had received her
portion. His widow Elizabeth married (sec-
ond ) September 24, 1658, William Remer, who
died October 26, 1672, and she married (third)
June 10. 1676, Henry Kimball. Children: I.
Martha, married. October 23. 1663, Richard
Comer. 2. Hannah, married, January, 1670,
Peter Harvey. 3. Mary, married. November
24, 1672, Richard Palmer. 4. Abigail, married
Moses Aborn. 5. John, mentioned below. Also
other children named in will.

(II) Deacon John, son of Humphrey Gil-
bert, was born about 1656-57, and lived on the
homestead in Ipswich. He was a member of
the church at Wenham until the formation of

which he was chosen one of the first deacons,
November 9, 1714. He died March 17, 1722-
23, aged sixty-seven years (gravestone). He

(IV) Joseph (2), son of Joseph (1) Gil-
bert, was born in Littleton, Massachusetts,
about 1 75 1. He was probably a soldier in the
French and Indian war. as he was an officer
at the breaking out of the revolution. He
was sergeant in Captain Samuel Reed's com-
pany. Colonel William Prescott's regiment, and
answered the Lexington alarm, April 19. 1775.
In the same year he was lieutenant in the same
regiment. Captain Eliphalet Densmore's com-
pany, his name being on the list of officers
May 29, of that year ; also lieutenant in Cap-
tain Samuel Gilbert's company, same regiment,
in August, 1775. A certificate by Captain
Joseph Moore, on file in the Massachusetts
state archives, states that Lieutenant Joseph
Gilbert had command of his company in the
battle of Bunker Hill. He married Sarah
Robbins, born in 1751, died in Hillsborough,
New Hampshire. November 25. 1828. He had
a son John, mentioned below.

(V) John (2), son of Joseph (2) Gilbert,
v, as born in Littleton, August 21, 1773. and
died March 30. 1857. in Hillsborough. New
Hampshire. He was a farmer in Hillsborough.
He married, October 8. 1783. Susan Pollard.



daughter of Benjamin Pollard. He had a son
Joseph, mentioned below.

(VI) Joseph (3), son of John (2) Gilbert,
was born January 10, 1799, died September
2j, 1838, in Boston. He married, August 3,
1825, Elvira Moore, of Marlborough, Massa-
chusetts, born 1800, died March 11, 1872. Chil-
dren : 1. Almira. born February 18, 1828, died

mond Barnes, September. 1834; married, in

(VII) John Clark, son of Joseph (3) Gil-
bert, was born November 2, 1832, at Hills-
borough, died October 31, 1903. His parents
removed to Boston when he was a boy, and
after the death of his father they returned to
Hillsborough, where he received his education
in the public schools. He became a clerk in a
general store at Nashua, New Hampshire, and
before he was eighteen years old went to Bos-
ton, in 1850, as clerk in the grocery store of
his uncle, John Gilbert. Jr. The business had
been established by his uncle in 1830 and Mr.
Gilbert soon made himself indispensable to his
uncle in the store. He was promoted from
time to time, and became a partner when he
was twenty-one years of age, and in 1865 be-
came proprietor of the business, which he car-
ried on under the firm name of John Gilbert,
Jr., & Company. At one time he conducted
stores on Essex and West streets, in addition
to his store on Tremont Row. His was the
oldest grocery store in Boston, having been
established in 1830. When the gold fever of
184*) attracted large numbers of young men
from this section, the firm had an extensive
business in providing the necessary outfits and
supplies. During the civil war he fitted out
nearly every vessel sailing from the port of
Boston and his old store was a rendezvous for
the naval line and staff, from midshipman to
admiral. He had many friends in the navy
and treasured a large fund of reminiscences
and stories, especially of the eventful period of
the rebellion. Upon the old ledger of the store
may be found the names of such men as Ralph
Waldo Emerson, Governor William E. Russell,
Joseph Jefferson, the great actor, Admiral
George Dewey, William Warren, the actor,
and many others of national reputation. The
most substantial citizens of Boston were among
his customers, and he numbered manv o f them

among his personal friends. The little back
room of his store was a favorite resort for
many congenial spirits. It was a favorite resort
for Ole Bull, the celebrated violinist, for War-
ren, Jefferson and Emerson, and in later days
for Admiral Schley, Admiral Sampson and
other distinguished naval officers. He was
conceded the peer of any man in mercantile
life in Boston in his day, in sagacity, foresight
and general business ability. He was a good
financier and while carrying on an annual
business of a quarter of a million dollars he
took pride in the fact that he never asked for
credit or gave a promissory note. His close
application doubtless explains his success in
large measure, and he remained in active busi-
ness until his death. He was interested in
public affairs and in the history of this country.
He was elected a member of the New England
Historic-Genealogical Society in 1885. In poli-
tics he was a life-long Republican and on sev-
eral occasions was urged to take the nomina-
tion for alderman in his ward, but he refused,
having no taste for public life. He was a
member of the Free Masons. He married
(first) August 23, 1853, Abbie Jane Keay, born
January 1, 1832, died January 3, 1861, daugh-
ter of Otis and Dorcas (Woodsum) Keay.
Her father was a harness maker and manufac-
turer of leather goods in China Village. Maine.
Her grandfather, Otis Keay, was born in Scot-
land and married, in England, Betsey Appleby ;
came to America when a young man and settled
in Lebanon, Maine ; was a farmer there ; he and
his wife died at an advanced age. He married
(second) September 1, 1861, Lizzie Lake Keay,
born August 15, 1834, sister of his first wife.
Her mother having died, she was taken at the
age of three by an aunt, who brought her up
and gave her a good education. Children of
first wife: 1. Susie Alice, born January 16,
1858, died July 23, 1903; unmarried. 2. John
Clark, November 5, i860, died June 8, 1861.

married, lives at home. 4. James Porter, Jan-
uary 24, 1867: mentioned below. 5. Caroline
Louise, married Harry W. Butts. 6. Elizabeth
H.. married William Hatch Smiley, who died
suddenly May 3, 1907 : child Gilbert Smiley,

(VIII) James Porter, son of John Clark
Gilbert, was born January 24, 1867. Gradu-
ate of Institute of Technology, 1889, expert
chemist and manufacturer of electrical sup-
plies in Warren, Ohio. He married Annis

The surname Kelso, and Kelsey,
KELSEY seem to have the same origin,

though Kelso is the common
spelling of the Scotch families, and Kelsey of
the F.nglish. Other spellings such as Calsey,
Kelse, Kelsea. Kelsa, Kelsy, are also found in
both families in America and in the old coun-
try. There is a parish of North and South
Kelsey in Lincolnshire, England. A Kelsey
family had its seat in Chelmsford and Thorp,
county Essex, in 1634, and had a coat-of-arms.
The founder of the Scotch family of Kelso
lived at Kelso-land, county Ayr, Scotland, Hugo
de Kelso by name, as early as 1296. John
Kelso, a descendant, alienated the property in
1676, and his second son William acquired
lands in Dankerth, Ayrshire, near the family
estate. Arms : Sable a fesse engrailed be-
tween three garbs or. Crest : A garb or.
Motto: Otium cum dignitate. Another seat
of the Kelso family is in Roxburghshire. One
of the Scotch Kelso family was the Presby-
terian minister of Enniskillen, Ireland, at the
time of the revolution of 1688, when William
took the throne of the United Kingdom from
James. Enniskillen was an unwalled village
of eighty houses, situated on an island in the
river which joins the two sheets of water known
as Lough Erne. The Rev. Robert Kelso urged
resistance to the Roman Catholic soldiers which
were to be placed there for a garrison, and
labored both in public and private "to animate
his hearers to take up arms and stand upon
their own defence; snowing example himself
by wearing arms, and matching in the head of
them when together." They had at first but
eighty men poorly armed, but were soon aug-
mented by friends of the same race and relig-
ion who fled from the murderous attacks of
the Irish Roman Catholics in the south and
west. From that time to the end of the war,
the men of Enniskillen waged a vigorous and
successful campaign. The family in Ireland
settled in Antrim and Ulster Province, and
was doubtless descended from the redoubtable
minister. Among the early settlers of London-
derry, New Hampshire, was a branch of this
Scotch-Irish family of Kelso. From London-
derry they removed to New Boston, and the
"History of Nottingham, New Hampshire,"
claims relationship with them, but the evidence
of the Connecticut origin of the Nottingham
family is too strong.

I I ) William Kelsey, immigrant ancestor, was
born doubtless in England, but may have been
of the Scotch family of Kelso, as the name was
frequently spelled in early records. He settled
in Cambridge, Massachusetts, as early as 1632,
and was a proprietor in 1633. He was admitted
a freeman March 4, 1634-5, and sold a meadow
there April 19, 1636. He removed to Hart-
ford, where he lived until 1663, and then settled
in the adjacent town of Killiugworth, Connec-
ticut. He was deputy to the general court in
