1    Birth date from the Certificate at Dr. William's Library -
Elizabeth Butler birth Certificate

2    An entry in the IGI (Films 452042, 455304) gives her date of death as 5th September 1808. This is one of a number of pieces of information on the IGI about this family that appear to have come from private sources. (The same source gives her birth date as 24th September 1774 at Cuckfield).

3    Neither Elizabeth nor any husband or children are mentioned in her father's will. This suggests that she had died prior to this date. However a Mr Samuel Davenport is mentioned in Daniel's will and he is described as son-in-law in Mary Butler's will, and two grandchildren Daniel Davenport and Samuel Davenport are also mentioned in that will.

4    Samuel Davenport: wife Bridget, children Elizabeth and Sarah twins born 13th October 1753, baptised in Westminster  14th October 1753.

5    A George Davenport aged 69 is listed in the 1861 census as a lodger (amongst many others) in St Andrew Holburn
