Sorry for the delay in replying to your email. As I mentioned, I have written a book "Where did we come from? A family history" which includes a large section on all our Drakes. Like possibly ALL the Drakes, there are family stories that we have a connection to the famous Sir Francis, but my research has found no such link - I have sighted all the old family pedigrees.
Here is a summary of our Drakes;
THE DRAKES FROM LEICESTERSHIRE & BIRMINGHAM
By Ginette Snow
SUMMARY of their movements:
Thomas Drake (died 1688) & Joan (died 1690) were the earliest in our line of Drakes. Their great great grandson James (1757-1814) & his wife Rebekah Luff (1760-1822) moved to Birmingham. James & Rebekah's grandchildren, Eliza & three of her brothers, James Charles, David & Francis, migrated to Australia (or New Zealand) in about 1855.
Eliza Drake (1827-1895) married Samuel Parkinson (lived in NSW) ..my ancestors ; also she married Thomas Kidston (lived Victoria & NSW).
James Charles Drake (1821-1865) m Margaret Clunie (mainly lived in NZ, but lived a few years in NSW)
David Drake (1831-1874) m Annie Gill (lived Victoria)
Francis Drake (b 1833) m Annie Armstrong (lived Victoria)
James Charles Drake (1821-1865) married Margaret Clunie (lived mainly NZ, but also Australia)

Subject: Drakes form Leicestershire
I have done a lot of research over the past 28 years & this has
included on my Drakes - from Leicestershire. I wrote a book in 2003 &
that included the big story of my Drakes. How do I join your group?
It is all a bit confusing on the website.
