I have a DRAKE connection. Ann Drake was the second wife of my ancestor
William CLARKE of Wisbech. They married in Wisbech in 1781.
Ann, Elizabeth and Mary were the daughters of John Drake and the
beneficiaries of his will. There is a lot of information about land that
John owned in Walsoken, Norfolk (just outside of Wisbech, Cambs) on an LDS
film #1702188 There are records of various manor courts in the area. It is
very interesting but difficult and tedious to read.
I have not yet found where John Drake came from or who his wife was.
Do you have any information about this John Drake? I have had the Wisbech
PR films but as I was not looking for any Drakes at the time did not notice
any. I realised it was "my" William married to Ann Drake when I was looking
through the Manor Court film.
