Davenport families of Cumbernauld
My great grandfather was born in Cumbernauld, Scotland in 1868. Any general knowledge of Ireland residency of the Davenport families before this time ?

I noticed that a Dan Davenport had founded Cumbernauld United "The Nauld" in early 1900s.  Sir Kenny Dalglish MBE played for Cumbernauld United before going onto Jock Stein's Celtic.  Both Jock Stein and Kenny Dalglish are reported as coming from Protestant backgrounds.

Earliest statutory birth for a Davenport in Cumbernauld, is 1917

Only one record of a male Davenport bort 1868 and it was in Moffat

Cumbernauld could be a mistake as Cumberland has also been used in ancestry suggestions.

I have a William Devonport (NOT Davenport) who was a Miner (unknown location) and father of Robert J. Davenport who married Kate Sylvester in the Birmingham area in 1891.

I can't find William Devonport birth in England.
