John Drake>
Hi,I am researching the birthplace of John Drake (my GGrandfather) who was born 1838/1839 he was a Ships Carpenter who apparently jumped ship in Melbourne to go to the goldfields. He was later taken to Tasmania by a David Cocker to build barges, here he married Janet Jessie Husband at Torquay in 1861,settled in Devonport where he raised a family and became a successful boat builder and respected member of the community. Is there anyone else tracing this particular Drake line who could help me solve the problem of his correct birthplace.?

Robert Drake
6 generations of descendants of ROBERT DRAKE. Robert was a sergemaker. Dow reported that he was from County Devon. Later research, however, has corrected this information. He first settled in Exeter, and he moved to Hampton about 1650 or 1651. He was a selectman of Hampton in 1653 & 1664; jury 1653; grand jury 1662. GDMNH shows the birth order of his children as Nathaniel, Abraham, Susannah. However, Thompson agrees with Dow.
