I am writing because i check your website regulary in my search for earlier drake ancestors. I am related to John Thomas Drake, who was the inn keeper at the Pavillion Hotel in Folkestone, Kent, England. He lived with his family at the custom house quay on the waterfront. Here is some info written about him.
He was also, (it says in one article) a ship owner. He is my great great great grandfather. I would like to know more about him and I would also like to see info about him on your website in hopes that i can discover more about my family. I cannot find a birth certificate for him. He was born abt 1816 in Chatham. He married Elizabeth major Rayner in 1838. My line follows his son Stephan butcher Drake, his son albert edward drake (who immigrated (1911 census)to brantford ontario to join his brother john) whose son was ernest charles drake who was my grandfather.
Could you please add a kent section to your database of english drakes? I am hoping it will help me bridge the gap to some of the older drake records on your website. My dad will not take a dna test and aside from cousins i dont know, there is no male drakes left in my line. I can send you more info if it would help, please just tell me what to send. thank you so very much. Sincerely,
From Angela Drake
