Hello Roy Andrews:
I had previously contacted you about Mary Elizabeth Ann Drake Milton
Briffett and you offered to put my concern in your question group. I have
another question, that I would like to ask you. I am in possession of the
first 1/2 of a Genealogical Table showing descent from Edmund Drake. I
believe the Table came from the book by Lady Eliott Drake, written in 1911,
Vol. 1. It may have been perused at the Plymouth Public Library. I currently
have a Inter Library Loan search going on in the USA to determine if the
text is available for loan. In the interim, I would like to ask you, "Have
you seen the Table" I am hazarding a guess that the balance of the Table may
help me to create a Family Tree with the current Drake information that I
have. Do you have any suggestions whether the Table may be available
elsewhere. I have browsed the Internet and haven't seen any evidence of such
a Table being available.
I really didn't realize until I started looking into the Drake
information sources of how many others are trying to identify a piece of
poor old Sir Francis in their Family Trees. I am trying to verify, one way
or another, that the Drake in my lineage is related to Sir Francis. My
interest stems from Mary Elizabeth Ann Drake Milton Briffett in the
Bridgwater area of Somerset. Apparently, which is not uncommon in many
families, Sir Francis Drake, by word, has been related to the family.
Any suggestions that you may have would be very much appreciated. Have
you seen the Table?
Thanks very much, John R. Briffett, Newport Beach, Calif.
