Hello Roy,
Saw your post on the Aus/nz site. I just happened to be talking with Mum(age 89) last night about her Terry/Folks background. So it's fresh in my mind that there is a Drake on the tree. It is not my direct line and I don't have more info than what's here:
Frederick George Bainbridge FOLKS (b 1861 d.1936) married in 1891 to Sophia Maude DRAKE (d 1953)
They had two children Francis Drake FOLKS b 1893 d 1979 and Edith Blanche FOLKS b 1896 d 1910 of Diptheria.
Mum's recollection of "Aunt Maude" is that she was a big woman, always dressed in black, was slow talking and would cook very plain food like corned beef and cabbage!
They lived up around Dry Creek (near Mansfield, Vic)
drizzly Melbourne
