    ?Raphe Davenant (abt 1502-1552) adopted an orphaned niece and nephew, Ellen (married Gerald Gore) and John. Ellen?s brother John abt 1540 - 1606) had a son John, father of Sir Willliam Davenant?
    The only odd thing about that account is that a John Davenant was bapt 1539 son of Ralph, ie suggesting that he was a biological son of Ralph.
    ---
    Shakespeare: A Life, by Park Honan, 1998, says that Ellen was aunt of John Davenant, the father of Sir William Davenant, poet, which is consistent with Schoenbaum.
    ---
    Her nephew Sir William Davenant was Shakespeare?s godson.
