As hereditary foresters of the King, the Davenports were literally the game wardens on the King's hunting preserves (largely in Cheshire) and had the authorized power to put poachers to death without trial. Hence, the crest of the Davenport coat of arms originally was a serf's head with a rope around its neck, signifying that the Davenports had the power to hang without appeal to the King. Davenports who went on Crusades to the Holy Land upon their return substituted the head of a Saracen with a rope around his neck
