Ellen Davenport (1838–)

Convict’s child who lived at the Parramatta Female Factory. Child of convict CHARLOTTE DAVENPORT née PLATT. Father’s name not recorded in the baptism entry; however, while we cannot outright assume it, ELLEN may have been the daughter of CHARLOTTE’s husband SAMUEL DAVENPORT, himself a convict per Asia I (1) (1820).
