Grimwade speculates that Burrage Davenport was 94 years old in 1843 when he signed an apprentice's form.
There were two men by that name.

Burrage Davenport I.
Born 1748.
Christening record for St Andrew, Holborn dated 16th March 1748, father William and mother Ann.
Married Sarah Bailey 1773.
Marriage record for St Ethelburgh, Bishopsgate dated 24th March 1773.
Died 1819.
Burial record for St Mary, Ealing dated 9th June 1819 aged 71 years. Last address Old Brentford.

Burrage Davenport II.
Born c1776.
1851 UK Census shows place of birth as St Leonard, Foster Lane. Christening record not found but the inference is that Burrage Davenport (I) who was recorded in Foster Lane in the Parliamentary Report 1773 was his father especially as he is known to have married in 1773.
On both 1841 & 1851Census he is shown as a merchant.
Died 1863.
Burial record for St John, Hampstead dated 11th February 1863 aged 86 years.
