Newsletter for the interchange of genealogical data and history of the Venable (and variant spellings) families who came mainly England. Many came from the Parish of Venables, a small town near Evreux, Normandy. The Venable family lived in Normandy until Gilbert Venables went to Cheshire, England just after the Battle of Hastings. Some also lived in Middlesex, England, and Leinster, Ireland. Gilbert was given the title of Baron of Kinderton, which title remained in his family until 1676. Focus is on Gilbert's descendants through Abraham Venables (born ca. 1673), who left England in 1682 with the Quakers, and settled New Kent County, Virginia. Abraham's first wife, Sarah, died giving birth to their first child, Issac. In 1723, Abraham married Martha Davis, who descended from an Indian woman named Nikitti and Nathaniel Davis of Devonshire, England. Abraham and Martha had a large family. Later descendants lived in Georgia and Virginia for several generations; others moved to Ontario (Canada), and to Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, Washington D.C., and elsewhere. Dates covered are the 1500's to the present.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.


Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

Thank you!

We will use this information to improve our records.
