Mr. Spruill: I believe that my family is related to the William Currell family of Tyrrell County, NC. In July of 1807 Elizabeth Holland and Amelia Carrell sold their moity in the undivided lands of Joseph Davenport. These two ladies were the sisters of Joseph and John Davenport and the daughters of Jacob Davenport. In Feb 1812 the two sisters sold their moity in the lands of John Davenport, "The Marriner" to Evan Bateman. The two sisters appear in the 1810 Census for Washington Cty. as heads of household living between John and Henry Gray. Betsy Holland has one female child between 0-9 and Milly Carrell has one male child 0-9 and one female child 0-9. My Davenport line were seaman and left a very small footprint on land and thus have been hard to trace. I know that John Davenport, "The Marriner" was my third great grandfather but I do not have the name of his wife( her last name could have been May) or if there were any other children. It would appear that both Elizabeth and Amelia married about 1795 and they could have lost their husbands at sea. Do you have anything regarding the marriages of William Currell's children and know if any of his sons were lost at sea? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Douglas Davenport P.S. My great grandmother was Celia Ann Spruill.
