Hi Dennis,

My mothers maiden name is Drake and she was born in Launceston. It would be interesting to see if we have any links? Mums fathers name was Robert Albert Drake (b 1903) and he had brothers named Ernest, Thomas, Alfred, Alan, John and sisters Connie, Joyce, Peggy.... Send me an email if you want to try and work some things out. Jason

The france being in honour of the resting place of Leslie Anson Drake. My Grandmother was Alice Elizabeth (McClenaghan) Ford, niece of L.A. Drake.My Cousin is travelling to Gallipoli soon and we would like to try and find the resting place of Lesie Anson Drake. We do not have is TAG Number. Do you have any information on him, if there is a connection with your line of Drakes. Kind Regards, Wendy Brown.

My father was William Leslie McClenaghan (mother Elizabeth Drake) nephew of Leslie Anson Drake and brother of Alice Elizabeth McClenaghan. I have the TAG Number etc of Leslie. I have been researching the McClenaghan family history and am still looking for information especially Mavis(Molly) Eileen McClenaghan married name (Doyle.)

I'm trying to trace back to my Great Great Grandfather's parents or brothers and sisters etc and am wondering if they are connected to Frances John Drake? My Great Great Grandfather's name was Samuel William Drake born (in Tasmania i think) in 1852, married to Annie Irwin Page in 1881 in New Town, Tasmania. They had 9 children, Annie, Joseph, Alan, Murial, Sidney, Ernest, Vernon, Mabel and Joyce. If you have any info about the children of Frances John Drake please get in contact.
I have a full family tree at if you want to check out more detail.
